Subject [jira] Created: (MIDEA-110) multi-module master ipr generated incorrectly
Date Wed, 02 Jan 2008 18:34:57 GMT
multi-module master ipr generated incorrectly

                 Key: MIDEA-110
             Project: Maven 2.x IDEA Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
         Environment: Windows XP / opened with IntelliJ 7.0.3 (EAP)
            Reporter: Darren Davis

I have a multi-module web-application which works fine with maven2.  In order to make it more
friendly with our source control system, the master project pom file was moved into it's own
directory, parallel to the child modules.  


The modules section of the pom.xml references each child module using a relative filepath:


Each child pom.xml was modified to reference the parent, also using a relative filepath:


With this configuration I can successfully compile,build, deploy the entire application the
mvn commands.

When I create an IntelliJ ipr/iml files using the idea:idea goal, the modules filepath are
incorrect in the ipr file.  These appear as:

  <module filepath="$PROJECT_DIR$/app.iml"/>
  <module filepath="$PROJECT_DIR$/C:/development/mavenflattened/GetSmartLogging/GetSmartLogging.iml"/>
  <module filepath="$PROJECT_DIR$/C:/development/mavenflattened/GetSmart/GetSmart.iml"/>

When i try to open up the master ipr with IntelliJ,  I get the following error message for
each module:

Cannot load module file 'C:\development\mavenflattened\GetSmartMaster\C:\development\mavenflattened\GetSmartLogging\GetSmartLogging.iml':
File C:\development\mavenflattened\GetSmartMaster\C:\development\mavenflattened\GetSmartLogging\GetSmartLogging.iml
does not exist
Would you like to remove the module from the project?

I have to manually edit the generated ipr file to get the project to open with the correct
module references.
