don't use variables in resources with eclipse:eclipse goal

SO, I tried using the nifty " mvn -Dwtpversion=1.5 eclipse:eclipse" and got a big ugly error:

[INFO] Cant canonicalize system path: {0}

I just hit the "classifier"

So, trying to mavenize our large java-based projects.  I found a jar that I needed to add to our project that had a different structure as I was familiar with.

Using the eclipse WTP with maven

I use eclipse and maven.  Instead of manually configuring my classpath in eclipse to match my maven project, I can have maven automagically generate all my eclipse files that I need to run my war file with the WTP (Web Tools Project).
I run the following at the command line, refresh my project in eclipse, and voila, my project is configured to run in eclipse.
mvn -Dwtpversion=1.5 eclipse:eclipse
