So I'm looking to use the standard MVN command line to create a web project for MyEclipse. I got MyEclipse due to the fact that I love the hot deploy feature. I don't have to keep rebuilding and redeploying in order to see my changes go in. Only problem is that when I use Maven and try to create a web project via the command line, the IDE doesn't recognize the project in the workspace as something I can deploy. I have done the eclipse:eclipse in order to create the '.project. file and have imported it in correctly so its IN MyEclipse however when I click on ADD DEPLOYMENT the IDE does not recognize it as a web project. I'm looking for a solution to this. How do I make it visible to the MyEclipse IDE?

I don't know about MyEclipse, but the integration between WTP and Maven is horrible. Then again, I don't have a very high opinion of WTP as a replacement for sysdeo either.
If MyEclipse is anything like WTP, however, it doesn't adhere to Maven's standard project structure by default. Which means that if you create a project in Eclipse, you have to manually gimmick it up to be Maven-friendly.
Going the other direction (like you are) is even worse. There's a LOT of work that needs to be done in Eclipse as far as making it capable of detecting and applying external architectural considerations, even ones as simple as converting a generic project into a Java project. Often the simplest approach is to create a new, empty project containing the facets/attributes you want and shovel stuff in from your real project. Which can be especially problematical if the original project is already under version control and what you're trying to do is update the VCS project with the Eclipse-friendly one.
