    Maven helps with deployment mainly. Its build process also runs any test classes, which the Eclipse build does not. Maven also handles dependencies by itself (most of the time), while Eclipse does not. It also separates the IDE from the project, meaning all members of the development team do not have to all use Eclipse. As long as they are using an IDE which supports Maven, there should be no issue with project building/dependencies, ect. on their individual machines.

    When asking for help, please follow these guidelines to receive better and more prompt help:
    1. Put your code in Java Tags. To do this, put [highlight=java] before your code and [/highlight] after your code.
    2. Give full details of errors and provide us with as much information about the situation as possible.
    3. Give us an example of what the output should look like when done correctly.
