Alternative to internal builds

Hit a major problem with IDEA 13 on one of our projects. Seems the resource pattern in the compiler settings isn't being honored by the build (by internal I mean not external - external build turned off). The only way I've been able to get these resources included and copied to the outputs was to disable external builds from IDEA 12.

However this is no longer an option in IDEA 13 - how can we do something similar? or why would builds be ignoring the resource patterns in IDEA 13? guessing all builds in 13 are 'external'?

Hi Richard,

Yes, this is the new build implementation and the only one. In IDEA 12 there was an option to use the older one to give time to plugins to switch to the new API.

This is possible if your project is created from Maven's pom files. Then IDEA tries to provide the same build output that would be if you built your project with Maven. So resource descriptions are taken from pom files and processed accordingly.
