Add class from maven module

Hi,

I want to use some class from module A in module B in a maven project. Module B has yet no dependency on module A. After typing classname and pressing Alt-Enter on it Idea offers

1. Add dependency on module A
2...
N. Add Maven Dependency...

when selecting 1 - the dependency is added to project config in Idea but pom is not altered and thus doesn't compile from command line and dependency is lost after reimport.
when selecting N - it just can't find any dependencies.

Is it a bug or intended behaviour?

Best regards, Eugene.

Hello.

On the choice 1 the issue exists: http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-101675

I will check the choice N soon.

Regards,
Alexander.

Sorry for delay, regarding choice N. Since "Add Maven dependency" searches the Maven repository, it really can't find anything in the project.

I think a fix of http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-101675 could be the proper place to resolve the issue, since "Add dependency to module A" is clearly suggested by that action.

Thanks,
Alexander.
