Some IDE are really good, IntelliJ, Eclipse, and NetBeans are ones of those.

But, one of the main thing I can have against such tools is memory and CPU consomption !

For some weeks, I am using a fantastic text editor name "Sublime Text 2". And has a Java "evangelist" and developer, I can not wait to try to use such editor with my favorite language.

So I need to build my project. I am used to run some maven tools 🙂 to compile, package (and so on…)

Happily, I've discovered on the web ZE "Sublime Text" plugin I need : "Maven" !

Yes this is the name of the plugin.

Just copy the Maven cloned directory to the??~/.config/sublime-text-2/Packages path

restart (if it is running) the Sublime Text 2 editor.

Open your maven project and just press the [CTRL]+[B]??a small state bar appear on bottom window where a default "clean test" is proposed. And you can write your own goal 🙂

the only thing you must have set before is the standard maven environment variables.

Have fun !
