Adding custom maven project as dependency

I’m using eclipse with the m2eclipse plugin now I just want to resolve a – imho – easy problem: I’ve got two maven projects, I want to add project A as dependency to project B.

Well how do I achieve this in a manner way? If I add the project A to the build path of project B eclipse recognizes the classes but this project isn’t resolved by eclipse on build time.

I got it working by installing project A to my local repo and adding this as dependency to my pom. This works but is cumbersome because I always have to install a new version of project A when something changed.

Shouldn’t the plugin handle such a situation for me?


Providing that you have both maven projects open in your workbench then make sure you have the “Enable Workspace Resolution” option enabled in the Maven context menu.
