Missing Project Exception after deleting the maven project created from eclipse | Selenium Forum
saiteja Posted on 28/06/2021

1. I have created a maven project using the terminal in Ubuntu with the process listed. The project created successfully.

2. Deleted the maven project by right-clicking.

3. And tried to create a new maven project from the terminal by giving the mvn archetype: generate.

4. Then i have observed the following exception in the terminal.

saiteja@ubuntu-Inspiron:~/Downloads/eclipse-java-2019-06-R-linux-gtk-x86_64/eclipse/seleniumworkspace$ mvn archetype: generate

5. Can you please update me on whether the procedure for deleting the project is correct.


1. When tried to open the above link as there is no pom.xml file I am not able to resolve the issue.

Its not able to find pom.xml

Is it present in project?

Actually, I have deleted the first created project (with pom.xml) and tried to create a new maven project is that possible to create a new maven project in the same location?
