Tools integration

Hopefully I've found support for all ideas used in our project.
Eclipse, and it is not surprising for those knowing me, as my IDE.
Maven as a project build tools (at the moment working well only as Eclipse embedded).
Maven tooling for Eclipse. Spring Server. Spring tooling and spring tooling for eclipse. Have I missed sth ? Off course there there are SVN Track and everything eclipse has to support it.
Now let me elaborate on "hopefully". I have no doubts that without Eclipse plug-ins life could be painful.

  • why I have cycles in my builds (ok I am using a bit customized scripts)
  • what is the best way to share such a project (how to share server configs, how to use relative paths)
  • how to fight with the dual sources of buildpath dependencies (one from maven, second from budle dependencies) - at the moment I am testing use of standalone profile to store dependencies from OSGi configuration.

Maybe its time (if this is possible) to build set of good practices for spring + maven + eclipse integration.
