They make no attempt to purge old dependencies that have been removed from the POM.
The build script keeps your Eclipse projects up to date with most changes, but does not update classpath settings when dependencies change.
However, after a little research I was shocked to discover that good-old Ant was there a decade ago!
With the This experience has caused me to take a fresh look at Ant.

) and has no progress bar This is very annoying since in our company some developers use IAM others use M2E.
So now the .classpath files of the projects here bear eater the IAM or the M2E classpathentry, depending on who started the project.
There are other things that committers believe are more important and are harder for users to try to fix and that can take precedence too (such as implementing WAR overlay support) If users submit patches they get applied pretty fast.
With m2e, you can use Maven within Eclipse in a natural and intuitive interface. *Requires Eclipse Marketplace Client")Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.

I tried to recover by uninstalling and re installing m2e, but didn't work.
I have been primarily living in the Maven world for some time now.
I knew that ad-hoc scripting is a standard feature in more modern build systems, such as Gradle (Groovy), Buildr (JRuby), and sbt (Scala).
