I am opening a Java source file which is part of a maven project. JDEE now runs maven once, which I can sort of understand. But whenever I move around in the file, it will trigger once more. Since it always splits my frame, and blocks Emacs, this is quite annoying.

Is there a how to or some rules on how to set up Emacs and JDEE for my Maven projects, so that this will not happen?

  • I agree! This is really annoying...

  • I did (jdee-maven-disabled-p t) to stop maven execution. Probably it is not my time for Java on Emacs... Who knows in the future...

The maven compile buffer only happens when you open the project the first time, try with mvn dependency:build-classpath -Dclassifier=sources to check is successful getting all the sources otherwise that will be the reason that why always run maven buffer on the startup
