Materialize Maven Modules in Eclipse

This note relates to:

  • Eclipse SDK 3.6.2
  • m2eclipse plugin 0.12.1
  • subclipse 1.6.17

In Eclipse, modules in a Maven project are materialized separately when the project is first checked out of a Subversion repository. However, when new modules are loaded as a result of a repository update, the new modules are not automatically materialized.

To prompt Eclipse to create new projects for the acquired modules:

  1. Right-click on the project containing the new modules
  2. Select Import… from menu
  3. Select Maven > Existing Maven Projects and press Next button
  4. Set the check boxes next to the projects to materialize and press Finish button
