IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.3: Maven Integration Improvements
Each new IntelliJ IDEA version brings lots of different enhancements. Maven integration is not exception to the rule, and I’d like to draw your attention to some Maven integration improvements in IntelliJ IDEA version 7.0.3, that I personally consider worth mentioning.
- Automatic synchronization with Maven structure on startup. Now, when importing Maven projects to IntelliJ IDEA, you can specify, whether you want IntelliJ IDEA to sync with the projects on startup or not (unlike it was done in IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.2 that used temporary modules for this purpose).
- Automatic detection of facets. While importing your Maven project to IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.3, the following facets are detected automatically: Java EE, EJB, GWT, and Web. All dependencies and deployment settings are recognized and stored. If you change some facet’s build setting, or add own deployment descriptors, IntelliJ IDEA will preserve them, so they wonâ€™t be lost when synchronizing with Maven projects.
- Selecting build profiles. If you import a Maven project to IntelliJ IDEA 7.0.3, you can specify profiles to be taken into account, thus selecting module structure and dependencies.
- Detecting errors. If you try to import Maven project from a pom.xml file, that is somehow corrupted, IntelliJ IDEA will warn you about erroneous descriptor file.
