Can't seem to move past 1939

I again tried to move up, this time to 1994. After refreshing my maven projects, the plugin created the facets, but did not assign a scala compiler.

I specify


Should I expect that that plugin would configure the facet with this compiler as it used to?

Well, I was willing to set it manually, but my options to do so look like:

I have these errors in the log:

Does nobody else seem to have these problems? How can it be only me?

the plugin is broken above 1939 for about anyone i think. 2000 also doesn't fix the (my) problems


Previous versions of the plugin considered "scala-compiler" dependency as a Scala compiler, that was a misbehavior.
Dependency on "scala-compiler" artifact has nothing to do with Scala compiler.
See this message for details.


May I see a pom.xml that is causing these troubles (including ones with encoding)?


Sorry Pavel, my pom also has:


I don't specify the goals or the scala version like in the thread you referenced, but the plugin is indeed executed for those goals with the correct version so I assume they are the defaults.

Just to be clear, in that thread you referenced you said:

"Such declaration should be automatically imported by IDEA as a Scala compiler library for facet.
(regular dependencies, like scala-library, should be imported as well - as entries in module dependencies list)."

So, with the above I should NOT have to specify the compiler in every module via the facet, correct? If so, this is not the behavior I am seeing. But I'll try adding the goals and the configuration sections and see if that helps.

What do you mean by "encoding"?


My iml file have the following:

  <component name="FacetManager">
    <facet type="scala" name="Scala">
        <option name="compilerLibraryLevel" value="Project" />
        <option name="compilerLibraryName" value="maven: org.scala-lang:scala-compiler:2.8.0" />

Which looks to be correct. I can start FSC and it seem to be up and running ok. But when I try to compile I get a popup saying

  "Please, adjust compiler library in Scala facet: multiple scala-compiler-*.jar's attached."

mvn dependency:tree shows this is not the case.

Anyway I have attached all my poms and the ipr and iml files for the project.



Pavel, is there anything I can provide?


I'm working on import right now, the project sample you attached was a great help to me.
Maven import is becoming significantly better :).


Thank you, thank you!


You are welcome. Check the next nightly build.

(your project deals with all possible technologies at once, looks like some AI implementation :))


I'm back on the edge! I've been able to upgrade to 2026. The scala-compiler in the module setting still displays as corrupt (ie, the squares) but all seems to work. I'm assuming that that corruption is an issue with Idea/Maven, as I see it in the maven dependency tree view as well. (Actually, thats the first time I saw the problem.)

Thanks Pavel!!


One downside however is that if I even open the module settings then all the Idea message from that point are little squares. For example after doing  a full build the popup that would say the build completed is a string squares. Of course this would also be the case if I [tried to] viewed the maven dependency tree. Restarting Idea clears things up.
