This guide shows quite different settings form what the wizard did: E.g. it specifies
for the Kotlin plugin, should I do that? And why does it replace the execution for the java compiler plugin in the guide?
Copy code
<!-- Replacing default-compile as it is treated specially by maven -->
How specially? What? What does that mean? Why is the documentation so bad?
The goal of that block is to make kotlin compilation executed before java compilation. It is explained right above that sample.
Earlier we used to schedule kotlin compilation to process-sources phase, but at some point the current approach was proposed, see for details.
thanks Ilya, this finally sheds some light on this!
