There are different types of maven projects to import into eclipse. In this Tutorial I am trying to explain about importing existing Maven project.

Import existing maven project :

  • Downloaded from this site or already existing maven project place in your eclipse workspace.
  • Right click on project explorer –> Select “Import” –> Select “Import”. Follow below screen.
  • Select “Existing Maven Projects” –> Click on “Next”.
  • Browse your project from workspace –> Click on “Finish”. Your maven project will be imported, you can see in Project Explorer.

Build Maven Project :

  • Right click on project that imported into eclipse –> select “Run As” –> select “Maven build” (2nd option, first option triggers recently used goals for build)
  • Enter goals “clean install” –> click on “Run”
  • You can see in console build status, Status should be “SUCCESS”.
