If you have a Maven project imported into you IDE, you don’t need to do anything specific to configure it. JRebel IDE plugin can take care of rebel.xml generation, and you can run or deploy it like any other project.
Additionally, we provide a JRebel Maven plugin to generate
rebel.xml configuration files for the project during build. Check how to configure the JRebel Maven plugin and how to enable the JRebel agent when starting the application via a Maven plugin (e.g. Jetty Maven plugin).
