Using Maven 2 EJB standard project layout in Eclipse

Is it possible to use the Maven 2 standard EJB project layout in Eclipse?

The standard project layout for EJB projects in Maven 2 is as follows:

src/main/java - for EJB / java files
src/main/resources - for META-INF, ejb-jar.xml, etc.

When I generate an EJB project in Eclipse I get a folder named ejbModule. This folder contains both ejb-java files and the META-INF folder. When I rename the folders to use the maven 2 standard, the "prepare for deployment function" stops working.

You should EITHER use the Maven way of doing things OR the Eclipse way.  Either will work, but you can't really mix and match.  I recommend that you use the Maven EJB plugin (maven-ejb-plugin) approach (while still within Eclipse - you will need the "M2" plugin which you can get from http://maven.apache.org/eclipse-plugin.html).  Note that you may have to have a hierarchical project structure with a pom file at the top level and also another one at the EJB level.  The maven plugin will take care of everything - it's definitely the way to go!
