Maven Plugin Matrix
Added by Jason van Zyl, last edited by allan ramirez on Jul 27, 2005
  • This list compares plugin availability between M1 and M2, tracking all publicly available plugins.
  • If a publicly available plugin is not on the list, please email the Maven users list asking to add it.
  • Note that in M2, no plugins ship with the core. M2 downloads them transparently as needed.
  • A red X in the M2 column means the plugin is not yet available for M2.
  • We hope to convert all plugins in a priority order (popularity?) and as time permits.
  • We need folks in the community to help out with the porting effort.
  • If you can convert a plugin from M1 to M2, please email the Maven users list to have your comments added.


  • Add plugins from SF project
  • prioritise
