Optional Java EE 5 application.xml marked as missing in Artifacts view

As far as I know, the application.xml is optional in Java EE 5. IDEA complains about "application.xml file not found" in the artifacts view. The problem is, that the artifacts get generated every time I import the Maven project in IDEA.

Am I misconfiguring the project or is it a IDEA bug?

We are using the maven-ear-plugin. Does IDEA recognize the plugins settings during Maven import? What are your suggestions for configuring the maven-ear-plugin to optimally use it within IDEA?

Thank you,

The warning about missing application.xml is indeed incorrect, we will remove it. IDEA should recognise settings of maven-ear-plugin and arrange
imported artifacts accordingly. However some options may not be supported yet
(see http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues?q=project%3AIDEA%23unresolvedmaven-ear-plugin for known issues).
