I have been trying to import the codebase of Activiti bpm into my eclipse indigo 3.7.0. As the import reaches 11% it never proceeds further for hours. Eventually i have to kill the process. I have been looking for answers since last 5 days. Is the a solution or a workaround. (Please see the attachment)

Thanks in advance

Check the import process which gets stuck at 11%

Did you try importing it one submodule at a time?

Exactly how are you importing? Existing project into Eclipse? Import from Maven project? Importing from source control? Other?

It is a multiple module project with a parent POM and Child POMs .
1. New > Import > Import > Maven > Existing Maven Project
2. Browse and Select Root Folder
3. Advanced Settings > Resolve Dependencies
4. Next

There is a difference between the parent POM <-> child POM relationship and the master POM <-> submodule POM relationship. I believe you meant the latter* and that you imported the master POM into Eclipse as an existing POM project. I asked if you could import the individual submodule POMs separately. If you can do that, there is a way to get the master POM into Eclipse also, though not via an import.


* - Yes, a master POM can also be a parent POM for its submodule POMs, which make the submodule POMs also child POMs, but I highly recommend against doing this. But the parent/child relationship is not of importance when performing the Eclipse import.
