MyEclipse and Maven (Riyad Kalla)

I am a very happy user of both MyEclipse (mostly the database tools) and Maven. I've recently started a series of web applications and discovered that the two tools disagree on where the web.xml, struts-config.xml, etc. should go.

Is there a way to change where MyEclipse looks for configuration files?

First, we are glad to hear that you enjoy the tool.

Second, the Maven issue you bring up we are very aware of. Maven is part of our future strategy and will begin to get addressed in the 6.1 release if not earlier. At this moment the best thing I can offer is this FAQ entry from one of our users that provided details on how to get the two to play together nicely.

I would clarify that of the things that would need tweaking it will be Maven2, because at this moment MyEclipse will look in the WEB-INF directory for those configuration files, and it gets that location from whatever the "Web Root" directory is set to for your Web Project. So if they are stored elsewhere, MyEclipse will not find them.

I agree. Here's the link:
