Import Maven Project into Eclipse using Maven Plugin

In this tutorial we shall see how we import maven project into eclipse.

I got lot of mails for my previous blog articles asking me how to use the downloaded project, hence i am writing this.

1. Download a sample Maven Project

Lets download a sample Maven Project from here and save it on our local file system and unzip the same. On unzipping we get an Eclipse Folder Project.

2. Install Maven Plugin for Eclipse.

Lets install the Maven Plugin for Eclipse. If you already have this plugin installed then you can skip to the next section.

In Eclipse –> Help –> Eclipse Marketplace search for Maven. Look out for plugin “Maven Integration for Eclipse WTP”  and install the same. I prefer this plugin because it didn’t give me much errors while using. However you can install other plugins based on your preference.

In Eclipse –> File –> Import expand Maven  and select “Existing Maven Projects” then Next, browse for the project folder we just downloaded in Step 1 and the click Finish.

The above step is the most important. If there is some error in the previous step then that might be because of Corrupt/Invalid Maven Project or Maven Plugin Issue.

The Imported Project would be present in the workspace will all the required dependencies download.
