IntelliJ IDEA 2016.2 Help

Generating Maven Dependencies

Maven integration facilitates working with dependencies. IntelliJ IDEA helps generate dependencies in the pom.xml files.

To create Maven dependencies in a pom.XML file

  1. Open the desired pom.xml file for editing.
  2. With the editor tab having the focus, choose Code | Generate on the main menu, or press Alt+Insert, and choose Dependency from the Generate pop-up window.
  3. In the Maven Artifact Search dialog box, select the desired dependency to be added. Note that you can search either in the artifacts, or in the classes. To do that, type the search string in the text field to narrow down the search scope, select the desired dependency, and click Add.
    The dependency is added to your pom.xml. IntelliJ IDEA also adds a Dependencies node with your generated dependency to the Maven Projects tool window.
