Configuring Eclipse to build HBase

As indicated in the, you should navigate to the "Hbasewrk" directory in your workspace and run "mvn eclipse:eclipse" to generate the .project file to use with HBase. You'll have to manually set the M2_REPO classpath variable by switching back to Eclipse, right-clicking on the project, selecting "Preferences", navigating to "Java > Build Path > Classpath Variables", clicking "Add Folder", and then selecting your local Maven repository (usually ~/.m2/repository").
