you are right... the m2e Eclipse plugin is the problem... So I would suggest to clearly state in the wiki to remove completely the m2e eclipse plugin before anything.

All parent projects have no 'maven-eclipse-plugin' configuration and are skipped when you run "mvn eclipse:eclipse" or "mvn studio:eclipse" on them.
So I don't see how you got such .project files created... Maybe an initial test with m2eclipse or another tool ?

As for the Eclipse version, I'm actually using Eclipse 3.8.1 (and not 3.8.2, probably a mismatch with the previous 3.7.2).
This version can be downloaded here:

Hope this helps,

Hi Pierre Arnaud

Ok so with Eclipse Indigo, Version: 3.7.2 Build id: M20120208-0800, the process of importing the ADS projects as explained here does not work

Open the Import Wizard, select General -> Existing Projects into Workspace, on the next wizard page choos Select root directory and browse for the checked-out studio folder, select all projects and press Finish.

because all parent projects get a .project file and the import process of Eclipse stucks on them.

So, how can one import all ADS projects?? (this does not work neither with the LDAP API)


By the way, if you could state also in the wiki where to download the Eclipse 3.8.2, that would be nice, because the only official Eclipse Indigo download points to the 3.7.2 version.

Hi Francis,

The requirements for working on Apache Directory Studio are the same
ones than to be able to run it:
- Eclipse 3.3 or later
- Java 6

We don't use m2eclipse but have instead our own "studio" Maven plugin
which helps with the creation eclipse project files and OSGI bundles
(in conjunction with the maven-bundle-plugin from the Apache Felix

I'll add these requirements to the page.

Thanks for the heads up.

By looking at this page or the wiki pages at, I did not found any requirements about the Eclipse version for building/running/debugging the Apache Directory Studio nor any prerequisite for external plugin like m2e...

Should one use the Eclipse Indigo or the Eclipse Juno?
Should one use the m2e Eclipse plugin or not?
