How to create maven artifacts from a local eclipse installation

The taxeditor poms require access to the latest eclipse bundles as maven artifacts. Luckily the maven-eclipse-plugin has a feature for that.

$ mvn eclipse:to-maven -DeclipseDir=<path to your eclipse installation or target platform>/eclipse \
                    -DdeployTo=<repository server id as in settings.xml>::default::<your maven repository as configured in parent pom.xml> \

If you do not want to deploy to the maven repository skip the deployTo option.

Please note that this is a rather lengthy operation.
