There is a Java implementation of git available at http://
www.jgit.org/ so I guess tooling (Maven, Eclipse) is really just a
question of time. The current IDEA is already supporting git.
I've never used GIT beside checking out a repository but I have only
heard praise from people that are using it regularly. For Windows, http://code.google.com/p/tortoisegit/
seems to do a pretty good job. For Mac OS X there's a tool called
GitX http://gitx.frim.nl/ but I haven't tried it yet. Looks promising.
You can find a seemingly very good book on GIT at http://progit.org/book/
- reading it is still pretty high on my TODO list.
I'd like to encourage that you give it a try - that way I have to do
the same ;)
