While the quickstart guide indicates that you should be able to just run the examples
from the Maven archetype that was not the case for me, what I got instead was
ClassNotFound exceptions because the default run configuration does not pull in
the dependencies as it should.
What I needed to do to get the examples to run from within the IDE was:
1) In project structure, add a new module say "mainRunner"
2) In mainRunner's dependencies add the main module (say "quickstart") as a module depency.
3) In mainRunner's dependencies add the rest of the project library dependencies.
4) In the run configuration for the example change the "Use claspath of module" to mainRunner from quickstart.
I think we should either include the instructions in the docs, or if possible change the Java quickstart archetype to include the extra module.
The Scala quickstart has the mainRunner module already, and the appropriate instructions
on how to run from within IDEA are in the docs.
