You (and other's using Eclipse with Maven projects) might find either
the Maven Eclipse plugin or the Mevenide Eclipse UI useful. Short usage
notes follow.

Maven Eclipse plugin, http://maven.apache.org/reference/plugins/eclipse/

  If you have Maven 1.0.2, you should already have the latest version
  of the Maven Eclipse plugin. To configure the plugin, add the path
  to your Eclipse workspace in ~/build.properties (or another suitable
  place) as the maven.eclipse.workspace property. Then run
  "maven eclipse:add-maven-repo" to add required configuration settings
  to your workspace. Finally, go to the Jackrabbit directory and run
  "maven eclipse" after which you can simply import the directory as an
  existing Eclipse project with all the dependencies and paths correctly

Mevenide Eclipse UI, http://mevenide.codehaus.org/mevenide-ui-eclipse/

  You can install Mevenide using the update site found on the Mevenide
  web site. After installing Mevenide, you can configure Jackrabbit
  dependencies and source paths using the Maven -> Synchronize context
  menu option.

  (Note that the Mevenide UI includes a stripped down version Maven
  1.0.0, so you may have some trouble building Jackrabbit using the
  Mevenide run wizard. YMMV)

My personal preference is to use the command line for managing my source
trees, and so the Maven Eclipse plugin suits me better. Others who are
more into the GUI thing will probably find Mevenide more comfortable.
