I have spent time on the Maven site reading the 5- and 30-minute tutorials, and trialing Maven out for the first time and want to install a Maven plugin and use it to start building Maven projects from Eclipse. Despite an honest effort, I have been unable to find a comprehensive tutorial on any Maven plugin. M2E, which seems like the de facto standard, has nothing but broken links on their site.
I can't tell if I even installed the plugin correctly, or how to use it. Does anyone know of a good step-by-step guide to M2E or any other plugin? One that comes with good installation documentation, along with a solid explanation of its features and proper uses?
