MyEclipseIDE Maven4MyEclipse Null Pointer bug

I use MyEclipseIDE generally as my main IDE, I recently switched development teams at work, while importing all their existing maven projects with the Maven4MyEclipse plugin into my new workspace I had quite a few of these little annoying popups:


I went and checked the Log:

java.lang.NullPointerException
at com.genuitec.eclipse.maven.project.MyEclipseProjectSupport.findWebRoot (MyEclipseProjectSupport.java:204)
at com.genuitec.eclipse.maven.project.MyEclipseProjectSupport.configureWebProject (MyEclipseProjectSupport.java:71)

at org.eclipse.core.internal.resources.InternalWorkspaceJob.run
(InternalWorkspaceJob.java:38)

So I figure it is moaning about the WebRoot... let me try:

Right click on project go to MyEclipse Menu and Add Web Project Capabilities.



Worked like a charm.
