Plugin execution

The following mvn command can be used to explicitly generate the Java classes:

mvn contraect:generate-contraects

After the plugin execution you should find the generated Java classes in the folder you specified through the configuration property targetPath.

Alternatively the default maven lifecycle phase generate-sources can be called - therefore the plugin configuration has to be as follows

<plugin>
<groupId>com.kryptokrauts</groupId>
<artifactId>contraect-maven-plugin</artifactId>
<version>0.9.1</version>
...
<executions>
<execution>
<goals>
<goal>generate-contraects</goal>
</goals>
</execution>
</executions>
</plugin>

Add generated classes to sources

Option 1

Add the folder manually as source-folder within your IDE.

Option 2

Generate classes directly into the regular source folder by defining src/main/java as targetPath.

Note: with this solution you will probably end up having the generated files committed to the repo

Option 3

Add the resources using the build-helper-maven-plugin:

<plugin>
<groupId>org.codehaus.mojo</groupId>
<artifactId>build-helper-maven-plugin</artifactId>
<version>3.0.0</version>
<executions>
<execution>
<phase>generate-sources</phase>
<goals>
<goal>add-source</goal>
</goals>
<configuration>
<sources>
<source>${project.build.directory}/generated-sources/contraect</source>
</sources>
</configuration>
</execution>
</executions>
</plugin>
