scala is somewhat maven-based (sometimes implicitly), that's why you use that structure.

the easiest way i think is to create a simple sbt/maven pom and create the eclipse project configurations (like with sbt eclipse). there you can set the dependencies (like the actual version of junit, scalatest to use), so you can use the scalatest plugin easily.

in case of other issues, feel free to ask at the scalatest mailing list, chee seng and bill venners can help you a lot there.
