So IntelliJ says it compiled successfully a project. However, when I execute maven jetty plugin to run a small web project, I end up with jars not being found. So what does it exactly mean when IntelliJ says compile successfully ? It seems that it just compiles them, and it really does not make any difference whether you compile or Make the project both cases will result in missing jars if you run the project using maven jetty plugin.
There’s lots of crap in netbeans however it seems to be the only edit that does what it says it’s going to do in terms of maven compilation. It sill suffers from some issue like for example you won’t be able to disable tests if you compile with dependencies.
For the time being I have to accept the flaring white colors of netbeans until one day I can figure out a more consistent way of configuring it.
