Using NetBeans with Apache Maven
Maven is a build automation tool for Java project management. You can easily open and work with Maven projects in the IDE. In NetBeans IDE 6.7 and newer, Maven support is included in the IDE. The IDE enables you to create Maven projects from archetypes using the New Project wizard. The IDE also includes a Maven Repository browser that enables you to view your local repository and registered external Maven repositories.
In NetBeans IDE 6.5, you will need to install the Maven plugin (available from the Plugin Manager) to open a project that uses Maven.
