I agree with Daniel - my request was to make plugin m2e 1.1 compatible. There are already efforts being taken to provide m2e connector for cxf-codegen-plugin (e.g. see here), I've tried it myself too, but there are few downsides:
- when maven plugin uses custom configuration API, m2e connector (practically eclipse OSGi bundle) to read that configuration it needs plugin configuration API to be published as OSGi bundle too, or repackage it in m2e connector just to add OSGi metadata so it can be used;
- m2e connector (lifecycle mapping metadata) that is published, installed and maintained separately from maven plugin that it connects with m2e will make using plugin harder.
Nobody knows better cxf-codegen-plugin and how it should behave in eclipse than cxf community.
