I am looking for a suitable archetype for building GWT applications with maven.

I have tried "Codehaus" and "modular-webapp":
  • Codehaus
    With the codehaus archetype, I get a lot of errors when importing the generated project in eclipse.
    It seems that there are plugins missing

  • modular-web-app
    This would be my favorite one, but after importing it into eclipse, it leaves me with 4 (!) top-level projects (1 main and 3 sub-projects).
    Maybe the archetype is good, but this is a behavior that I cannot accept when dealing with many projects. (Can you avoid this?)
I know that there are several methods of using maven with eclipse and that there are different plugins.
Maybe the errors I saw with Codehaus result from this.

However, what can you recommend?
