IntelliJ IDEA 13.1 Web Help

Maven module enables managing Maven projects, executing Maven goals, downloading artifacts, etc.

When a Maven project is created, its contents is shown in the Maven Projects tool window, and the powerful editing assistance is available for the pom.xml files.

To create a Maven module from scratch
  1. Open the project you want to add a module to, and select File | New Module.

    As a result, the New Module wizard opens. (There are also other ways of accessing this wizard, see Opening the New Module wizard.)

  2. On the first page of the wizard, in the left-hand pane, select Maven.
  3. In the right-hand part of the page, specify the module name, and the location of the content root folder and the module .iml file. Click Next.
  4. On the Maven page of the wizard, specify the aggregator and parent Maven projects, if any, and Maven project coordinates. Note that if a parent Maven project is specified, the new Maven project can inherit its GroupId and ArtifactId.
  5. If you want to create a Maven project based on one of the Maven Archetypes, select the Create from archetype check box, and select the desired archetype from the list.
  6. Click Finish.
