With a certain project structure, it's not possible anymore to create a project out of Maven poms with IDEA 7.0.2, even though it worked as expected in 7.0.1.
Here's an example derived from a more complex, but comparable real world scenario we're using here:
There are two Maven projects A and B that both depend on a 3rd Maven project, called C. Nothing spectacular yet.
Additionally, there is a multi module Maven project defined to build A (ABuild) and another multi module Maven project that builds A and B (ABBuild).
The complete project structure together with dummy source files is attached as a zip file (test.zip).
On the command line both ABuild and ABBuild can be built using Maven, so the structure is perfectly valid.
It is possible to create an IDEA project out of this with release 7.0.1 by pointing to the "test" folder in the respective dialog.
The result what 7.0.1 sees when scanning the test folder is shown in 701_import.GIF.
After leaving all projects selected, the project is created and looks like in screen shot 701_project.GIF.
Trying the same thing with 7.0.2 fails: this release already sees less projects when scanning the test folder. This is shown in 702_import.GIF.
Clicking "Next" in this dialog then leads to an error message (see 702_error.GIF) and a project isn't created.
As already mentioned we're facing this problem in a real world scenario and right now we can't use the 7.0.2 release here.
7.0.1 on the other hand has a number of other Maven related bugs (and others that are relevant for us) that were fixed in 7.0.2, but apparently the fixing broke something else here.
Any comments, hints or bug fixes would be very appreciated.
Edit: might be somehow related to http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-22813 but this claims to be fixed in 7.0.2
