When using maven, one can configure the maven-war-plugin to use a different web content root than the default src/main/webapp.
this is done using
and is necessary in some cases (especially when the project has to work with RAD/Eclipse WTP).
currently when importing such a pom in IDEA, the web facet is created but is incorrectly configured with the default src/main/webapp (and as a result the web.xml is not found either).
I'm still seeing this in 7925
Want to me to create a JIRA issue ? or are you already aware of it ?
