m2e-code-quality by bimargulies

This project builds Eclipse plugins that connect some other Eclipse plugins with their corresponding Maven plugins. If you've gone to a lot of trouble to set up just the Checkstyle or PMD configuration you want in Maven, and you import your Maven projects into Eclipse with M2Eclipse, you want to see the same warnings in your Eclipse editors that the maven build will complain of.

At this time, the two plugins supported are Checkstyle and PMD. Findbugs waits for a new release to supply a missing OSGi export.

There is a Google Group to facilitiate communications about the use and development of the plugins: m2e-code-quality Google Group

The current snapshot/qualifier versions are available on the update site, with newer versions replacing older ones.

The most recent snapshot was 27 May 2011, containing version, the first version aimed at 0.13. This was built from the m2e-0.13 branch.
