Maven2 - Simplification of Build Management

Maven2 has made a great improvement in simplification of build management. It is only one step to generate a skeleton application with Maven2. This is as easy as Ruby-on-Rails code generators. Maven2 does not only provide lots of code generators. It helps also greatly in testing, deploying, dependency management and all other project management issues.

An example. You have a project generated by maven2. Then you want to create a project file for IntelliJ Idea. Normally you would open Idea and adjust the settings on classpath, source path etc. With maven2, you only give a command: mvn idea:idea. Maven2 handles all the settings for you.
