    For what it's worth, I have a separate project (in Eclipse) which
    contains my business objects and Cayenne XML files. This way I can
    reuse them if needed. In that context, they are located under:


    My default output folder is "bin" instead of "src", so the
    xml/classes/etc get put over there, too, when Eclipse builds the
    project. To use the business objects, I make other Eclipse projects
