Hey Ryan,

What do you want to do exactly with the POM? Probably there is a facet already, and if not we should consider adding one…

Besides that the ResourceFacet and JavaSourceFacet are for low level resource access and there are facets related to working with Maven facet and plugins which probably covers most of what you would need.


p.s. Spring? Really…?  ;-) http://www.slideshare.net/ertmanb/javaone-2011-migrating-spring-applications-to-java-ee-6

For example, when the user creates a new project, the plugin should create files such as a POM for the web app.  If there's a simple answer, or a good spot to look within the Forge core, that would be much appreciated.
