Yes, this is quite a nuisance, especially when updating dependencies 
breaks the compilation. I guess it is needed so that code-generating 
plugins, such as xdoclet or  wsldl2java could have a chance to add their 
target directories as additional source directories. They usually do it 
in generate-sources lifecycle phase. Eclipse plugin then includes these 
directories in the eclipse project descriptors.

I was wondering whether it is be possible to move eclipse:eclipse 
execution to process-sources (or maybe better process-resources) phase? 
Then at least it would not fail when compilation fails. Maybe an author 
of the eclipse plugin could comment on this?
