  1. I would love to see some Maven archtetypes for Mule 2.2 that we could use! Then you basically get all this functionality right out of the m2eclipse plugin.

  2. Neil, the archetypes work fine if you know how to invoke them for 2.2. I have updated the docs with usage examples.

    The point of the IDE is a different one, though: many of our users don’t use Maven. For them, the IDE is invaluable help managing their projects.
