Getting started with WO Development using Maven
This tutorial focuses on getting started with Maven in Eclipse/Development. Maven and the Maven integration plugin are bundled with Eclipse so you don't need to install anything additional.
We don't cover Maven building on the CLI nor do we discuss concepts or how any of this actually works. This just gets the darned thing up and running, we can talk concepts and understanding later. So:

settings.xml (seen below in this gist) into
~/.m2/settings.xml. Now Maven knows where WOCommunity keeps it's stuff.
