I've tried to import pom-files before but somehow I always fail. I revert to using mvn idea:idea which I know isn't supported and every now and then I get into huge problems having to re-do all module-files, running mvn clean like 100 times and finally being able to start working again.
(I'll start here and probably/hopefully end up with more follow up questions as I progress)
So, our set up is quite common although perhaps not by the book. We have a parent pom that is the parent pom for all other poms. We do this to get smaller poms and to be able to manage global dependencies easy. However unusal, it works perfect running maven standalone.
A first easy step would be to add just one single of our modules. This won't be enough but at least get me starting.
Eventually I'll need to add somewhere between 5 and 10 different modules so my choice is to create an empty new project and then add the modules as I need them
And here is the first real question. What is "Maven Home Directory"? I'm running ubuntu and finding the "Maven User Settings File" and "Local Repository" is no problem.
Sorry for being fuzzy
