Prevent ear/war from being built

This is probably a silly user question, but I couldn't find the setting.

I have a maven project in multiple modules, with an ear and a war.

when I compile and test some modules on which these ear and war depend, IJ always rebuild the ear and war. How can I prevent that?

- Go to project settings (Ctrl + Alt + S, 1)
- For the Web module:
- Select the Web Facet
- In the 'Java EE Build Settings' tab, deselect 'Create web modular war file'.
- For the Ear module
- Select the Java EE Application Facet
- In the 'Java EE Build Settings' tab, deselect 'Create application archive (ear) file'.

Note that refreshing the Maven POM will reset these changes.

In 7.0.3 eap changes won't be resetted, provided that you import with 'regular idea modules' option.
