Please be clear in explaining the problem you faced. Anyway I will demonstrate the steps in creating a maven project
- GoTo "File" --> "New" --> "Maven Project" . You will see the below window
- Click on "Next".You will see the below
Now if you want a simple maven project choose "maven-archetype-quickstart" . If you want a webapp then choose "maven-archetype-webapp"(type "webapp" in search box and you should find it)
Once you have made the selection , click on "next" . You will see the below
For "GroupId" - Add your company/organization name For "ArtifactId" - Add your project name
Click on "Finish"
Eclipse will now have no problem in creating a maven project for you.
