I am also having this problem. Trying to use the recompile widget set button in Eclipse Indigo and get an error message statign : Unable to locate Web Content Folder. Ensure the project is a dynamic web project".


Just fixed the problem I was having related to this error message. I created the project from a maven archetype for the mobile touchkit, which does not create a Dynamic Web Project. To enable your project as a dynamic web project:
1. Right click the project.
2. Click Properties
3. Select "Project Facets"
4. Select the check boxes "DYnamic Web Module" and "Vaadin Plug-in for Eclipse".

Now you should be able to successfully recompile the widget set. Hope this helps someone! :)
