      Description

      Hi,

      I'm experiencing problems creating eclipse project files, if the project's description in pom.xml contains special characters like german umlauts (like "öüä"). Refreshing the eclipse workspace after running eclipse:eclipse results in the following message from eclipse:

      "Errors occurred while refreshing resources with the local file system.
      Failed to read the project description file (.project) for comworld-eventlisteners. The file has been changed on disk, and it now contains invalid information. The project will not function properly until the description file is restored to a valid state."

      This is caused by the content of the .project's generated comment-tag containing the exact same description as in pom.xml. But the .project-file is generated without stating an encoding parser should use to read it. So, if I prepend the line
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-15"?>
      eclipse is able to read the file just fine.

      Regards,
      Stefan
