IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3 Help

Synchronizing Changes in Maven Project and IntelliJ IDEA Project

IntelliJ IDEA lets you make changes to both, the structure of the original Maven project and the resulting IntelliJ IDEA project, and synchronize structures of the two projects.

Synchronizing Structure of Maven and IntelliJ IDEA Projects

  • In the Maven tool window, click refresh button /help/img/idea/2016.3/refresh.png.

    On pressing this button, IntelliJ IDEA parses the project structure in the Maven tool window.

    Note that if you configure a dependency through the Project Structure dialog, the dependency will only appear in the IntelliJ IDEA Project tool window, not in the Maven tool window.

  • Alternatively, open Maven Settings and select the Import Maven projects automatically check box. In this case, IntelliJ IDEA will reimport Maven projects automatically every time you change the pom.xml.
