Eclipse updating maven dependencies slow
Anyway, I installed Netbeans 6.8 just to try how this handles Maven and on the same project the it is setup much faster.Of course, when libraries need to be downloaded it takes a while, I am asuming that everything is in the lokal Repo already.I'm sure I've had m2eclipse running before without such big problems, so I'm wondering if something has changed. Fast machine with local nexus mirror configured in This is a relatively large project - ~100 projects, ~80 artifacts.Its not taking 10 Minutes on my setup, but still rather long (maybe one or two minutes).I was thinking if it wouldnt make more sense to just skip the whole step of preparing each project on startup again...usually when you leave the workspace the setup is correct and if I want IAM to prepare the project (paren pom changes) I can just call "Project - Clean".I assume it's something odd or broken in my pom files?
Finally, when turning on 'Build automatically', there's a further 8 minutes of maven processing, doing [process-test-resources].So, if you’re one of those people who counts the seconds in a slow Maven build, keep reading, this should help you.Or at least will it will line up your thoughts to help figure out how to improve it.If that file is not download or not exist due to any reason, Maven's dependency search will not work in Eclipse.
That's why you need to check the option "Download repository Index updates on startup".
Recently I face an strange issue while using Maven in Eclipse via M2Eclipse plugin.
