+      <question>The Assembly Plugin is saying it cannot find files for the module binaries
included by my assembly descriptor. What gives?</question>
+      <answer>
+        <p>If your assembly includes module binaries, those binaries won't be available
to the assembly plugin except in special cases. This is normally seen
+           when the Assembly Plugin is bound to a phase of the standard build lifecycle.
It happens because of the way Maven sorts and executes the build process for
+           a multimodule project layout.
+        </p>
+        <p>In a multimodule hierarchy, when a child module declares the parent POM
in its &lt;parent/&gt; section, Maven interprets this to mean that the parent
+           project's build must be completed before the child build can start. This ensures
that the parent project is in its final form by the time the child 
+           needs access to its POM information. In cases where the Assembly Plugin is included
as part of that parent project's build process, it will execute
+           along with everything else as part of the parent build - <b>before the child
build can start</b>. If the assembly descriptor used in that parent build
+           references module binaries, it effectively expects the child build to be completed
<b>before the assembly is processed</b>. This leads to a recursive 
+           dependency situation, where the child build depends on the parent build to complete
before it can start, while the parent build depends on the presence
+           of child-module artifacts to complete successfully. Since these artifacts are
missing, the Assembly Plugin will complain about missing artifacts, and 
+           the build will fail.
+        </p>
+        <p>In many cases, you can avoid this problem by adding a new child module whose
sole purpose is to produce your assembly. In the POM for this new project,
+           add dependency definitions for any of the module binaries you had previously referenced.
Then, move your assembly descriptor into this new child module,
+           and change all module-binary references to dependencySet references. Obviously,
any fileSet or file references you may have in this descriptor may need 
+           to be adjusted or have the files they reference moved into the new child module
alongside the descriptor itself.
+        </p>
+        <p>In cases where you absolutely must use module-binaries references, you should
avoid binding your assembly into the main build lifecycle. Modify your POM
+           so that the Assembly Plugin configuration is defined in the main the plugin declaration,
then remove the executions block from that plugin declaration
+           (which supplies the phase and goal specifications that create the lifecycle binding).
Finally, to process this assembly, you'll need to execute something like
+           this:
+        </p>
+        <p><code>mvn package assembly:assembly</code></p>
+        <p>to force Maven to build the entire multimodule structure to the 'package'
phase <b>before</b> attempting
+           to process the assembly. This ensures the module artifacts are present to satisfy
your module-binaries definitions.
