Sonatype, caretaker of the Maven project and leading provider of enterprise software development infrastructure, today announced Sonatype Maven Studio for Eclipse. The Studio is the only Eclipse Integrated Development Environment specifically optimized for Maven, the de facto standard for Java project and build management used by more than 3 million Java developers worldwide. The Studio accelerates developer productivity through a range of innovations including one-click onboarding -- making developers fully productive in minutes rather than hours or even days.
"The process of onboarding new software developers is slow, cumbersome and prone to error," said Mark Driver, vice president and research director in Gartner Research. "Lost productivity due to inadequate and ineffective onboarding processes is a 'hidden tax' that causes organizations to waste a great deal of time and money."
Getting a new developer up and running can take up to a week of trial and error as they assemble a working development environment, struggling with project dependencies, plug-ins, preferences, and more. With one click, Maven Studio automatically installs and configures everything a developer needs to start delivering value to their organization.
With open source M2Eclipse at its core, Maven Studio for Eclipse will also deliver a number of innovations beyond one-click onboarding. These include:
Maven Studio for Eclipse also provides tight Maven platform integration, including support for Eclipse provisioning and workspace materialization, allowing developers to automatically install the Eclipse IDE, check out the project source and configure preferences. Maven Studio for Eclipse works closely with Nexus Professional and leverages its Eclipse repository support to make one-click onboarding seamless.
