The directory structure is not any different except where the root is in 
your source tree unless you have done some strange things with your 
sources or other resources.
Have Eclipse, with M2, (or Eclipse STS) generate a Maven project for 
you, add a simple dummy program and compile it. Then compare your source 
layout with Eclipse's maven layout and see how much your current layout
