Hmm, that does seem like an integration problem. My recommendation would be
against using mvn eclipse:eclipse, but rather "File --> Import --> Existing
If that option is not available, that is likely also the reason why the
import did not work in the first place. I hope this helps! Let us know if
it works :)

I'm a quiche-eating IDE user, so I'm running Forge in JBoss Tools 4.1 (on
Eclipse 4.3.1), not standalone.
If I use the Forge version (1.3.3) that was bundled with JBoss Tools, all
is good: Forge "new-project" automagically generates the appropriate
Eclipse artifacts (.classpath and .project), and Eclipse recognizes and
displays the project.
I downloaded and unzipped Forge 1.4.2 and, in Eclipse Window ->
Preferences, used Forge -> Installed Forge Runtimes to add the unpacked
Forge 1.4.2 runtime and mark it as the default runtime to use.
With that setup, Forge 1.4.2 starts up fine in Eclipse and "new-project"
generates a new Maven project. But it doesn't have any Eclipse artifacts,
so not surprisingly the project is invisible to Eclipse.
Probably the missing automagic is something really simple (at a guess,
perhaps the embedded 1.3.3 knows it should run "mvn eclipse:eclipse" and
does that, whereas perhaps my unpacked 1.4.2 doesn't get the message to do
1. Is there something I should have configured somewhere so that the
Eclipse-artifact automagic "just works" for e.g. my unpacked Forge 1.4.2
2. If #1 is a non-starter, should I just remember to intone something
(e.g. "mvn eclipse:eclipse"?) after "new-project", or is there more
Just for grins I tried "mvn eclipse:eclipse", which did indeed generate
.classpath, .project etc but still didn't make the project visible to
Eclipse (even after an Eclipse restart), so presumably there's something
else needed, maybe in the .metadata for the Eclipse workspace?
