Re: [m2e-users] Strange behaviour with WTP Integration and "Update Project Configuration"?

Any project referenced by a web project in Eclipse must be a utility project (unless it's an EJB project)
You can check that with genuine eclipse projects. It's the WTP way.

That's why when a project is added as a dependency to a maven war project, the utility facet is automatically added if not present.
The fact you can't access the utility classes is more problematic. What version of m2e-wtp are you using?
Can you try running Maven > Update project configuration on this project too?

project the Utilities projects was touched also. Actually, it was
converted to an WTP project... After that the Utilities project was
visible unter the "Web App Libraries" container of the Webapp project
but I couldn't access the classes of the Utilities project within the

The fact that the Utilities project will be converted to an WTP project
when triggering "Update Project Configuration" on the Webapp project,
seems rather strange to me. Is this the expected behaviour?
