I am working on maven netbeans platform project consisting of several modules. I need to depend on some modules (say java.source module), but when I try to run the application, it reports, that required modules are not installed. And event despite I have dependency on java.source declared in my pom.xml
I think, that I have to tell maven somehow, to install (and turn on) these modules in the final assembled application before my module is loaded.
How could I do something like this?
When I try to create complete netbeans application project from maven artifact and add Java Source API as a dependency into pom.xml... when I run the application, window with following message appears:

The error-message "Module dependency has friend dependency [...] but is not listed as friend" means that you need to specify an implementation version of org.netbeans.modules.options.editor. You can achieve this by editing src/main/nbm/module.xml to contain the following entry (I didn't use the actually needed values here. Make sure to find out which values to enter for id and explicitValue to satisfy the dependencies (You can find explanations / instructions in the article linked below):
<dependencies> <dependency> <id>org.netbeans.modules:org-netbeans-modules-editor</id> <type>impl</type> <explicitValue>org.netbeans.modules.editor/1 = 201107282000</explicitValue> </dependency> </dependencies>
I'm pretty sure that the following article will explain some issues and help you find out the needed values for id and explicitValue (language is english, author is me):
I'm currently having related problems with my application, so I might come back with a more concrete solution in a while.
the easiest way is to grab a class that its complaining about, say "org.netbeans.modules.editor.actions" and go to the Add Dependencies and plug it into the Query field. From there you should be able to tell which module you will need to include
