Lets say I have a web project which uses Maven, EJB, JSF, JPA. It appears to me that when I go into Netbeans or Eclipse to create the new project, the associated wizard wants me to pick ONE, such as JPA Project, Maven project, or EJB project. How do I decide which one is the best place for me to start? Thanks in advance.

In Eclipse, start with a Maven project. If you can find an archetype that contains the other things, then you are all set. Otherwise you will have to add facets for the other items to your project. Starting with a Maven project is key so that the builder knows you will be using Maven.
