Eclipse JDT (Java development tools) is a very interesting piece of code, but it is not always easy to reuse it outside of Eclipse.
Since 2017 the jars are published on Maven Central, in a maven friendly way (no Maven Tycho required). This is a very good first step.
This talk will discuss two main pain points:
1) Consuming the jars directly from Maven Central
In the Eclipse world we are used to have "P2 Update Site" and "Target platform"… Those do not exist in the plain Maven world (there is only one repository: Maven central).
