Add M2_REPO to eclipse


While working with maven projects we normally need to create the M2_REPO variable on Eclipse.

Normally I was used to do manually with these steps:

 - Eclipse > Window > Preferences > Select the Java > Build Path > Classpath
 - Point to your maven repository, shall me under: ~/.m2/repository
 - >rebuild your project

But a easiest way is:

>mvn eclipse:add-maven-repo -Declipse.workspace={PATH_TO_YOUR_WORKSPACE}

If you are thinking on “Where do I need to point my M2_REPO”
Answer: You need to point to your {home}/.m2/repository
