dependencies in multi-module may projects require a 'mvn install' before using

    Details

      Description

      The scenario is as follows:

      Parent Project P

      +-- Project A

      `- Project B

      B has a dependency on A (B requires A).

      A user with an empty local repository cannot checkout the whole project and
      run 'mvn eclipse:eclipse' due to unsatisfied dependencies. The build will
      fail in Project B because Project A is missing from the repository.

      A 'mvn install' has to be executed before (at least for Project A). But what
      if the project is in a state where it doesn't compile? It's not possible in
      this case for a new user to start developing with eclipse.
