Subject Re: maven src directory for generated code

my understanding is that target/generated-sources/<toolname> is appropriate - 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.

(Source: http://wiki.netbeans.org/MavenBestPractices#Open_existing_project)

There is also a Maven plugin which allows to add folders to the Maven source folders list.
This may help if e.g. Eclipse does not properly pick up the folder:
