I will have a go, but some end-of-financial-year deadlines have caught
up with me so I won't have a chance to try it for a few weeks. Some
more information is that on the Subclipse mailing list someone told me
my problem is a known problem with the Subclipse plugin - it does not
handle overlapping source trees at present. Subversive apparently
does. So I think its a Subclipse bug, not an Eclipse bug that I was
facing. This means probably nothing for Eclipse to do here.

As a side note I am just looking for "the right way" to do Maven
development with Eclipse for large multi-module projects. I don't care
too much which are the best tools. We had been using m2eclipse, but its
been unreliable for us, and having it all in one project as the source
base has grown is no longer so effective. Having overlapping projects
as in Eclipse 3.2 onwards is looking promising. I am trying one project
per maven module (with its own .project file created by mvn
eclipse:eclipse) which also means each module gets its own classpath
(which is good - m2eclipse had a global classpath for everything which
causes problems if different WAR file modules want different versions of
jar files). Having an parent overlapping project corresponding to the
root pom and all sub modules means I can use that root project for svn
branch/tag/switch stuff taking care of keeping all modules in sync (we
tag and branch at the project level, not the module level). I have no
need to be able to compile from within the root project. I do all final
compiles and builds from the command line at present - I just want
compiles inside Eclipse during editing and debugging. So the Subversive
+ mvn eclipse:eclipse + Eclipse >=3.2 is what I am trying to get playing
together nicely.

Thanks,
Alan
