Hi all,

i hope i write it in the right place.
I checked out a maven project from svn and can not run/edit the code,
because all classes are derived. If i go to the properties of any file the
checkbox "Derived" is not activated. I get a popup message "This file is
derived. Do you really want to edit it?" when i try to edit any file. So i
have no idea what to do.
I hope anybody can help me with my problem.

Cheers,
Artur

How did you check the code from SVN? Did you use the team support in IAM?
Knowing which IAM version you are using will also help.

Isn't any of the parent folders marked as derived either?

If you are confident that your files are not derived (i.e. they are not
being generated by maven or other eclipse plugin you might have
installed), you can go ahead and edit them.

What you see is an standard Eclipse warning. If the file is really
derived, you might loose your changes when it is regenerated.
