I am having an estrange behavior when configuring in a pom file a hibernate plugin and the execution goals. I am having this estrange error:

The pom file is the following and the errors appear where I marked in comments:

Can anyone give me a hint of what the error can be?

Thank you in advance.

Looking at the documentation for the hibernate3-maven-plugin:hbm2cfgxml goal, I see this:

Invokes the execution of the lifecycle phase generate-resources prior to executing itself.

I think that setting hbm2cfgxml to run at the generate-resources causes a possible infinite loop and perhaps that is what Maven is complaining about.

I see in the docs that the hbm2java goal runs during the generate-sources phase by default. Try removing the phases from the goals that have default phases.

Try using different execution ids, perhaps those are causing a conflict with the default ids.

Also, try running with the -X option. At the start of the output there will be a build plan report that identifies all of the plugin goals that will run and what their settings are, perhaps that might give a clue.

Finally, which version of Maven are you running?
