      Description

      Avro IDL is very convenient to use, and we currently use the code generation feature in java. However, automatically generating schemata from the IDL is a bit more cumbersome and less automatic than we would like.

      It would be great if the functionality of the IdlToSchemataTool could be exposed in the maven plugin as an additional type of thing that could be generated.

        Until this functionality is provided in avro-maven-plugin (which would be desirable), I've written a small HOWTO that will let you do the same thing using exec-maven-plugin.
