#eclipse-to-maven eclipse-to-maven mavenises the existing Eclipse based workspace.


  • Converts .classpath files into pom.xml
  • If required, prints the depdency graph of eclipse projects.
  • Moves source folders according to Maven convention. So for instance Java sources go to src/main/java folder.
  • Removes spaces in the names of the folders. So "Calculator Component" becomes "CalculatorComponent"
