Sample project

I have been developing some ideas at our Maven project and I tried to separate integration from unit tests using build-helper-maven-plugin.add-test-source plugin. But for my surprise the 'Generated Test Sources' which NetBeans maps these folder are not recognized by the IDE as a valid source root, so I don't have a lot of features as:

Refactoring: If I try to refactor the package of some classes I have manually moved to there, the refactoring just generate wrong files.

Wizards: I am not able to create new classes and packages at these new folders. It is true too for Tools > 'Create Tests', where I can't select these new mapped folders as test folders.

I have create a simple project where you can reproduce the issues. AFAIK, basically these folder are just recognized by the compiler as dependencies but not as valid source roots, what is not true IMHO.

I think the configuration of 
build-helper-maven-plugin.add-test-source plugin
would be helpful
Comment 2 markiewb 2014-03-27 19:53:43 UTC
I tried it.
a) add-test-resource is not recognized
b) but 

shows at least "Generated Test Sources (java)"/ "Generated Test Sourced (resources)" nodes in the project tree.
And yes you cannot do any refactoring (Move/Copy/Refactoring hints) in classes below those nodes -> that is the issue you are reporting

This old bug may not be relevant anymore. If you can still reproduce it in 8.2 development builds please reopen this issue.

Thanks for your cooperation,
