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, PMD or SpotBugs (or Findbugs) configuration you want in Maven, and you import your Maven projects into Eclipse with m2e, you want to see the same warnings in your Eclipse editors that the maven build will complain of.

At this time, the four plugins supported are Checkstyle, PMD and SpotBugs (and Findbugs).

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.
