I'd like to see if anyone can point me to a reference on how the Spring Tool Suite for Eclipse is developed.
Primarily I'm interested in how a developer would set up an environment and what the gotchas are with regard to using maven as the automated build.
I've been developing under Maven now for close to 5 years and the entire Eclipse plugin platform is a bit of a mystery to me. I have been investigating using Eclipse BIRT as a reporting engine and would like to use the ODA architecture to communicate with our back end. Where I've gotten stymied is how to handle dependencies both in the Eclipse PDE development environment and then with Maven.
Any pointers on this would be gladly accepted!
