With the launch of Aspose Maven Dependencies through Aspose Cloud Maven repository and the release of Aspose Maven Archetype, it has been now possible to create Aspose Maven based project on Major IDEs platforms or on any other tool / platform that understands the Maven standards and allow creating Maven based project through Maven Archetypes quite easily.

Aspose Maven Project Archetype – v1.0

This Archetype allows easy creation of Aspose Maven based project. You don’t even need to worry about the latest available versions for Aspose Java APIs as all latest version Aspose APIs Maven Dependencies will automatically be imported for the newly created Maven Project.

This will also add the required configuration of Aspose Cloud Maven Repository to the Maven Project.

The blog will present a step by step tutorial as how to use Aspose Maven Archetype for the seemless creation of Aspose Maven based project on Eclipse IDE platform using Eclipse IDE native Maven Project Wizard.
