This information is currently out of date. Please consult the Maven and Mojo web sites for the existence of plugins

  • 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.
  • The number of (star) is an attempt to priorities based on my guess at usage.
  • (question) = whether we need it is not yet determined and so should be the lowest priority
  • (warning) = Non functional

Key:
M1: Exists for Maven 1
M2: Exists for Maven 2
FC: Maven 2 version has all features of Maven 1 version
Rev: Has been reviewed and confirmed FC
Doc: Plugin documentation is complete
Rel: Whether the Maven 2 version has been released ((tick) is final, but may be Beta or Alpha as well)

If you want to see the code for these plug-ins they are either located at Apache or the Mojo project at Codehaus:

  1. I am working on the Weblogic Plugin for 2.0 but my email on this page is incorrect. It should be scryan@alservices.com

  2. I have just released a Docbook plugin for Maven2, although in very alpha state. You may find the issue at http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MOJO-165.

  3. I updated the doc and released the Castor plugin at Mojo. Can you please update the matrix?

  4. Maven Backport175 Plugin (for M2) is available here. http://maven-backport175.sandbox.seasar.org/

  5. Please add the Maven Jini Plug-in which is available here: http://maven-jini-plugin.jini.org/

    Thanks.
