I've got a maven multi-module project with an overlays module also included. The overlays are used through maven overlays <overlays><overlay>...</overlay><overlays> in the maven-war plugin. And this works when I build the artifact through a normal maven package.
However, when working with the IDE, I always have to add the overlays module as a facet to get all my overlays content copied over to the main web-app. And this keeps dissapearing everytime I do a re-import.
I have my deployment through the IDE on a local tomcat instance using the web facet exploded directory option.
Is there anythig I need to do or any known issue around intelliJ honoring the maven's overlays capability?
