Please find a simple maven based project in attachment. This project has generated sources using maven plugin throgh XJC, and it compiles fine on command line.
However when I import this into IntelliJ 12 as Maven project, the first call to Make project will failed due to missing source. Now ofcourse I can go to my command line and run "mvn compile" once, then go back into my IDE and referesh, then it Make project successful after that. But that's a lot of hassle and not IDE friendly.
Now, after a few project imports, I found that I can rigth click project then Maven > Generate Sources and Update Folders. This seems to generate the sources and bring it into the IDE. So my question and sugestion is why this step is not automatic?
