1. The Premise: It's a MyEclipse
The premise behind Maven4MyEclipse is that
first and foremost, it's a MyEclipse project.
What this means to the user is that it should
work like any MyEclipse project has before, and with and without
Maven. All the setups, the tooling, and general workability of the
project should be as any other.
Thus if you never ran a single Maven goal, your
project would still work the same way.
Similarly, your MyEclipse tooling should never
have any effect on the Maven or the running of it's goals.
The addition of Maven to a new project at
creation time is accomplished with a single checkbox.
