Subject [jira] Created: (MIDEA-120) Plug should properly configure IDEA's generate-sources folder

Plug should properly configure IDEA's generate-sources folder

                 Key: MIDEA-120
             Project: Maven 2.x IDEA Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.2, 2.1, 2.0
         Environment: ALL
            Reporter: David Hoffer

As a developer when I run the plugin I want the IDEA project files to be aware of the generate-sources
folder(s) in target and be configured as source folders.  Currently the plugin does not do
this and we have to manually configure these folder(s).  

An example is when the XMLBeans plugin is used it will generate sources in the /target/geneate-sources/xmlbeans
folder.  In this case /target/geneate-sources/xmlbeans should be configured as a source folder
for this artifact.

Ideally the plugin should be smart and auto find all generate-sources subfolders and add them
as source folders in IDEA.  However as a second best option it would be okay if the plugin
allowed me to manually configure these additional source folders in the plugins configuration
section.  Since the folders are static and known when authoring the pom this would not be
too bad of a solution, however the first option is prefered.

Note that in IDEA versions that support auto loading of pom files this works correctly (8.1
at least).
