I'm stumped on how to use get IDEA to work with maven. I'm not the main developer here that uses maven so I don't know much about it. I can get my ui module built ok without it but it's a pain in the butt since I have to find all the jars in my local repository (vs a typical WEB-INF/lib). I've tried using this plug http://maven.apache.org/reference/plugins/idea/goals.html#idea:idea first and it builds the prj files for me after running "maven idea" and when I open up the project file it made the whole directory structure is there but all the java files have a red slash through the 'j' icon next to them and its as if they aren't even java files.
I've looked at this plugin also http://www.intellij.org/twiki/bin/view/Main/MavenPlugin but does it only work with aurora? I tried to follow the instructions and use it with 4.5 but I didn't see how to use it to build any project based off of maven project files?
Thanks for any help.
