Re: [m2e-users] existing eclipse web project to maven

Ya, that's what I was thinking. Maven is good if you start with maven but I inherited this. :(
Thanks for the input everyone. It unfortunately validates what I was thinking.

You could possibly knock out the jar dependencies using a nexus repository and running a checksum search to locate the dependencies. But attempting to do this in one day is rather aggressive.

If you have 50 jars with no documentation, specially about the version of each jar you are using and have less than one day to 'mavenize' your project, then I'm afraid you'll be moving back to ANT.

I have an existing eclipse web project with no maven pom or anything. I just installed maven and m2. I created a basic pom.xml. All I want to do is make my existing eclipse project 'mavenized' so I can build it outside of eclipse. I have literally about 50 jars in the WEB-INF lib and just want to import them as is into the pom. I also don't know how to make it build a war. I tried to do that Configure-Configure eclipse for maven or whatever the option was in m2 and it just hosed up my eclipse project (says something about a facet yet won't let me drill down).

How do I do this?
There is literally NO documentation. It all sends you to that eclipse encyclopedia page or whatever which just describes what m2 does and has a link to a troubleshooting FAQ. There is a video that shows how to import jetty. Ok. That's nice.
I am not a maven expert but I have worked with it a while ago and understand the jist. I have less than one day or I'm moving back to ANT.
