Pogamut & Maven & Eclipse

Working under Eclipse is extremely easy, at least from my point of view :-)

First-Steps tutorial for Eclipse (pdf with screenshots) (we thank Liew Clement, clementliew@nus.edu.sg, National University of Singapore for creating it!)


  1. install Eclipse 3.6, or 3.7 (v3.7.2 is preferred) or newer
    • Unpack it to some place, e.g. c:\eclipse
    • Turn off UAC (some plugins are having problems with UAC during installation)
  2. install Subclipse plugin
    • see Subclipse Download&Install web page
    • copy to clipboard correct update site
    • startup Eclipse, go to Menu - Help - Install New Software
    • click on “Add” button on the right-upper side of the dialog
    • add new update site (name it Subclipse and provide link from the clipboard from the Subclipse site)
    • list your new site from the combobox
    • install Subclipse plugins
  3. install M2Eclipse plugin (this step is not required as of Eclipse 3.7.2 version that has M2E bundled, applies if you're using IDE for Java Developers version of Eclipse)
  4. now it is advised to use Tortoise SVN (or some other SVN client) to checkout desired Pogamut project from the SVN
    • Use svn://artemis.ms.mff.cuni.cz/pogamut/project for all projects
  5. in Eclipse, right-click empty space in Package explorer window (usually located on the left upper side of Eclipse), click Import, choose Existing Maven Project and browse for folder where you have checked out the Pogamut SVN
    • Eclipse should load all Maven projects into the list and you may select which one you want to import
  6. alternatively, you may specify new remote catalog of archetypes via Eclipse-Window-Preferences-Maven-Archetypes

In general it is good to read something about Maven as Pogamut build is fully Maven-based.
