Plugin execution not covered by lifecycle configuration error in Eclipse Juno
Why does my Maven build work perfectly fine on the command line but when I run in Eclipse, it requires I add this section to my pom.xml, otherwise I get this error: Plugin execution not covered by lifecycle configuration : org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-compiler-plugin:3.1:testCompile (execution: default-testCompile, phase: test-compile) Isn't it strange that this occurs around the 'maven-compiler-plugin' plugin?? I cannot find another question like this anywhere on google, although I find many fix suggestions around 3rd party plugins. I've done a great deal of researching and searching and found no explanation of this, not even from here. And the pom.xml required to fix this: <!--This plugin's configuration is used to store Eclipse m2e settings only. It has no influence on the Maven build itself.--> <plugin> <groupId>org.eclipse.m2e</groupId> <artifactId>lifecycle-mapping</artifactId> <version>1.0.0</version> <configuration> <lifecycleMappingMetadata> <pluginExecutions> <pluginExecution> <pluginExecutionFilter> <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId> <artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId> <versionRange>[3.1,)</versionRange> <goals> <goal>testCompile</goal> </goals> </pluginExecutionFilter> <action> <ignore></ignore> </action> </pluginExecution> </pluginExecutions> </lifecycleMappingMetadata> </configuration> </plugin> And , here is my simple project on GitHub if you want to see my source.
I finally solved it. It appears that the "pluginManagement" section I posted above is required by an Eclipse Maven project in general, even though I resisted it, and even though no documentation that I can find on the internet ever mentions this explicitly. ALso, the "versionRange" in the lifecycle exclusion section seems to also require the version number of the "gmaven-plugin" rather than the "version of Maven" which I was trying to give it above. <pluginExecutionFilter> <groupId>org.codehaus.gmaven</groupId> <artifactId>gmaven-plugin</artifactId> <versionRange>[1.5,)</versionRange> <goals> <goal>testCompile</goal> <goal>compile</goal> </goals> </pluginExecutionFilter>
You may require an M2E "connector" to understand maven-compiler-plugin using the Eclipse (JDT) compiler. Select "discover connectors" and choose M2E connector for Eclipse JDT compiler provided by JBoss, or install it manually. M2E connector for the Eclipse JDT Compiler 184.108.40.206209200903 You may also be offered a Groovy connector -- maybe it uses similar technology under the hood? -- but unless you are using Groovy, it probably does not make sense to install such integration.
