I m using eclipse as IDE, I want all the jars in maven repo to be a part of class path for this application. Adding these jars one by one does not look feasible due to obvious reason that repo use to have huge folder structure and traversing through each and every folder structure to add the jars in path would take a lot of time.
could you please suggest some better approach for the same.
If your job is anything like mine, the Maven repository gets bigger every day and its actual contents are unpredictable. And, of course, there are multiple versions of many of these items in the repository.
Are you using a Maven plugin for Eclipse? The Sontatype plugin will automatically add all the library references in your project's POM to the Java Build classpath and even provide a handy browser element for Maven Dependencies in the Project Explorer view.
An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
