I'm wondering if there is opportunity to disable automatic artifact creation feature in IDEA project during each maven reimport.
I'm developing maven project in IDEA 11.1.1. After importing changes in maven poms IDEA automatically adds artifacts (war and exploded war, to be specific) in project 'Artifacts' section. The problem is IDEA has to validate dependencies in these artifacts and found numerous errors (100+) in these dependencies. So it consumes certain resources for doing this and often detracts me from the point when I open Project Settings dialog.
I'm not using the Artifacts feature (i build all I need using maven), and those automatically created artifacts (along with its errors) neither help nor harm my work too much, though it's not good when these artifacts appear again and again regardless of if I remove them or not.
I will greatly appreciate any assistance regarding this issue. Thanks.
