I'm attempting to take an existing Web project in Eclipse and modify it so I can use Maven to build it. Something like this tutorial specifies:
google this: how-to-convert-java-web-project-to-maven-project
(sorry the forum won't let me post a link)
In step 1 of the tutorial is where I hit problems; From windows explorer I've modified the directory structure as they suggest, then went into Eclipse and refreshed Eclipse's synchronization with the file system. Eclipse then starts doing weird things like creating packages named 'main.java.org.tomatoes' underneath 'Java Resourses: src' and of course now Eclipse is complaining in all the classes, because I have package declarations like:
...but Eclipse put them into main.java.org.tomatoes
So my questions are, why is Eclipse creating these incorrect packages and moving my folders there? and
What can I do to get the new directory structure to work correctly in Eclipse, specifically the correct packages showing up?
It seems to me that Eclipse is trying to do some 'smart' adjustments for me, and I don't quite know how to get it to play right!
Any help appreciated.
I should also mention that I've tried modifying the directory structure from within Eclipse as well and that also just got screwed up in a similar fashion.
