Project directory structure overview
org.somecatchyname/ <= project basedir, all project files are under this directory org.somecatchyname.m2e/ <= main bundle project src/ pom.xml org.somecatchyname.m2e.tests/ <= automated tests (optional, but highly recommended) src/ pom.xml org.somecatchyname.m2e.feature/ <= eclipse feature project feature.xml pom.xml pom.xml <= aggregator pom.xml
