    The project names in the JBoss src eclipse .project files

      [Moving this into the forum]

      In the JBoss source, each sub-project has a .project file. These project files contain project names which mirror the directory of the sub-project, like this:

      aspects
      build
      cluster
      common
      etc...

      This does not play nicely with Eclipse. When I import them into a workspace, I get a bunch of projects which are not recognizable as JBoss-related mixed in with my home grown (and other 3rdparty) projects like this:

      aspects
      blah [mine]
      build
      cglib [cglib's]
      cluster
      foo [mine]
      etc...

      This would be much, much more pleasant if all JBoss projects started with a prefix:

      blah
      cglib
      foo
      jboss-aspects
      jboss-build
      jboss-cluster
      etc...

      Why not change the names in JBoss' .project files? I submitted this bug, which was rejected:

      http://jira.jboss.com/jira/browse/JBBUILD-304?page=all

      I ask here, what docs explain this? I can practically quote most of the JBoss docs as scripture, but hell if I can find any rationale for the ambiguous naming of the .project files. My typical workspace has about 15 projects aside from the ones from JBoss.

      BTW, the JBoss portal projects at least all have portal- at the beginning.

      Thanks,
