>          Key: MECLIPSE-88
>          URL:
>      Project: Maven 2.x Eclipse Plugin

> When referencing a dependency internal to the source tree, the eclipse plugin requires
that the project first be installed. This is at its most preposterous when creating a brand
new project and configuring it for development in Eclipse; we have to install it before we
can even start writing code. This seems premature.
> For instance, create the following:
> mkdir example
> cat <<'EOT' >pom.xml
> <project>
>   <modelVersion>4.0.0</modelVersion>
>   <groupId>com.example</groupId>
>   <artifactId>example</artifactId>
>   <version>1.0-SNAPSHOT</version>
>   <packaging>pom</packaging>
>   <modules>
>     <module>my-lib</module>
>     <module>my-app</module>
>   </modules>
> </project>
> mvn archetype:create -DgroupId=com.example -DartifactId=my-lib
> mvn archetype:create -DgroupId=com.example -DartifactId=my-app
> Add to my-app/pom.xml:
> <dependency>
>   <groupId>com.example</groupId>
>   <artifactId>my-lib</artifactId>
> </dependency>
> Run:
> mvn eclipse:eclipse
> And watch the fireworks. It seems awfully silly, but you have to mvn install for my-lib
first. (Mind you, this makes complete sense for external dependencies, just not for those
that are also going into Eclipse.)
> I'm not sure if this is fixable, or if there's an existing workaround that I've not been
able to find; I haven't gotten any responses on the mailing list. I also apologize if it's
a duplicate; I did comb the summaries before I filed, and I didn't see anything similar.
