Subject Re: maven src directory for generated code
Date Thu, 21 Oct 2010 15:22:38 GMT

Thank you for this helpful hint.  I was just now following up on 
Richard's tips and was trying to figure out how to get Eclipse to 
recognize the new source directory.  I think I now have a working solution!

I will send it around shortly.

- I've seen this in a couple of instances. This is also what is mentioned in the NetBeans
wiki on Maven best practices:
>>> If your project contains generated source roots that need to appear in the project's
source path, please make sure that the Maven plugin generating the sources generates them
in the target/generated-sources/<toolname>  directory where<toolname>  is folder
specific to the Maven plugin used and acts as source root for the generated sources. Most
common maven plugins currently follow this pattern in the default configuration.
