There is your problem right there.
This is an Eclipse problem not Maven.

p.s when you say "I got the real problem but still looking for
solution.", it would be handy for the archives for you to detail what
you did so that others searching the internet can find the answers for
next time.

How are you configuring Eclipse?
You will find that a xmlbean project will generate its source in
target/generated-sources/xmlbeans and at least the version of
org.codehaus.mojo:xmlbeans-maven-plugin we are using requires us to
manually add this source directory via build-helper so that
maven-eclipse-plugin can include that directory automatically.

I do that like so


By default maven-eclipse-plugin will use project references.  So
module2 depends upon module1's project in Eclipse.
Because the classpath for module1 has not been correctly setup (i.e.
its missing target/generated-sources/xmlbeans) then module2 won't be
able to build correctly.
If module2 had been setup to use the jars in the repo instead, then
you would not be having this problem.
(I prefer Eclipse project references and not links to jars in the repo
for projects that I am working on)

Of course if you are not use maven-eclipse-plugin I dont know what the
problem is, but the cause would be similar.

Normally I manually fix the build path's in Eclipse to get things
working, and then backtrack to determine why this wasn't done
automatically for me.
