Having written many Java GUI applications, I thought it would be cool to run them embedded in IntelliJ IDEA, Eclipse and NetBeans. I didn’t want to write 3 plugins per application so I came up with this solution.
The Flatten Maven plugin
You don’t need to wait until the release of Maven 5; we can use the Maven Flatter Plugin to between build POM and consumer POM. It’s a freebie; consider using it if you are a library developer.
