---------------------------------------

             Summary: avro-maven-plugin: Can't import idl files as classpath resources from
the same set of sources 
                 Key: AVRO-1384
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AVRO-1384
             Project: Avro
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: java
    Affects Versions: 1.7.5
            Reporter: Alexandre Normand
            Assignee: Alexandre Normand


We have a use case for importing idl files as classpath resources (it makes possible to re-use
idls in downstream artifacts if all imports use classpath resources as opposed to a file-based
reference). To enable this, the imports in the same artifacts should be able to use classpath
resources for other avro files in the same source structure. 

The proposed approach is to just add the source directory of avro files to the classpath.
The avro resources would then follow the directory structure. This means that if someone configures
the avro-maven-plugin with a source directory like this:
{code}
<sourceDirectory>${project.basedir}/src/main/resources</sourceDirectory>
{code}  

And the idl files live under {{${project.basedir}/src/main/resources/avro}}, the imports could
be referencing other avro files like this: 
{code}
import idl "avro/otherSchema.avdl";
{code}

Things open for discussion: 
* Any documentation required to make this clear to end-users?
* Should I add the resources directories to the classpath as well?
