I think the default phase for the Avro Maven plugin is generate-sources, so
I'm surprised that doesn't work. You can always explicitly bind the plugin
to that phase. This is what I've been using to get my Avro
protocols/schemas compiled and added to the build path, both through the
command line and with the Eclipse plugin: http://pastebin.com/4WgjUW9Z
The Maven Eclipse plugin is buggy, especially when dealing with
generated/added sources. To get the plugin to execute the generate-sources
phase I usually have to right-click the project, go to the Maven sub-menu,
and then select Update Project Configuration. Sometimes that will result in
the generated sources getting added to the build path. If not, you might
have to manually add target/generated-sources/avro to the build path by
going through the project properties.
I'm also not aware of any documentation for the Avro Maven plugin (although
running maven:site on the source would probably generate it), but you can
always look at the plugin source to see what properties it's looking for:
