I am glad to see m2eclipse here at Eclipse. I've been wondering if at some

compile or really all build tasks within Eclipse - such that JDT and
m2eclipse plugin are not redundantly building?

Tim, when you are developing in Eclipse, there is no redundant
building between m2eclipse and JDT, as JDT is the only one who is
building classes.

The only time that you may see classes compiled again is when you
launch Maven from the command line of from IDE using shortcuts that
m2eclipse provides. In this case classes will be compiled into a
separate folder (see [1] for more details), but that can be changed, so
Maven would pickup classes compiled by JDT (though there is certain
danger in that).

Anyway, in the future we might be able to integrate Maven build life
cycle with JDT's own build cycle.

regards,
Eugene
