Normally maven is use for project dependency management and lifecycle, so there are several developers working on it. Each has its own development environment either in windows, linux or mac. To do this we create several profiles for each developer in pom.xml.
 <profiles>
  <profile>
   <id>windows</id>
   <properties>
    <jboss.home>C:/manaty/jboss-4.2.3.GA</jboss.home>
   </properties>
  </profile>
  <profile>
   <id>linux</id>
   <properties>
    <jboss.home>/home/project/jboss-4.2.3.GA</jboss.home>
   </properties>
  </profile>
 </profiles>
And then invoke mvn with the -P argument. Example:
mvn install -Pwindows
mvn install -Plinux
How could we do the same inside eclipse. There are 2 ways: 1.) Right click on the project->click properties->select maven menu
If in case maven is not present, right click on project->Maven->Enable Maven Dependency 2.) Right click on project->Run As->Run Configurations->Maven Build->Add a new build (set profile and goal)

What's the reason of both ways fail?
I have threee profiles in my pom.xml...
When I add all the three profiles using project->properties->Maven-->Active Maven Profiles it ssems as if the last occurance of a profile element in the pom.xml is used.

Using the Runc Configurations the profile with

true

is used.

...the profile with
<activation>
<activeByDefault>true</activeByDefault>
</activation>

is used.
