Hi Robert,

the POM file would be usefull to everyone, not only Eclipse users. If you are willing to, it would be a worthy contribution. And it should not days.

One issue with MASON on Eclipse used to be the storage of extensions under a sub-fulder, whereas for Eclipse they should be separate projects. Thisis something you will need to fix by hand.

I was able to replicate the Eclipse issues using a clean clone of the repository and the short version is that Eclipse basically doesn't know what to do if there is no project file present. It looks like dropping a Maven pom.xml in will allow Eclipse to manage things as a Maven project, but it's going to take me a couple days to do that. Would there be any interest in incorporating that into the official repository?

Wow, that is nuts.  MASON should have no problems whatsoever in this regard -- it's quite bog-standard Java code.  Some googling suggests that this may be an Eclipse compiler bug, but honestly, I have no idea what Eclipse is doing here.
