I have created a maven multi-module project setup in eclipse. After executing maven install through eclipse i can see all target folder having exclamation symbol even though the reactor summary shows successful build for all child modules. And also the jars are perfectly crated then why does it show exclamation on target folders in child modules

Look at the Markers view, that should tell you what Eclipse thinks is wrong; usually it ignores the target directory. But then I never use the structure you are using - each of my submodules is a separate project, not one large project containing everything.

I would recommend the same as what Peter has said. As far as your problem is concerned , try to do a project update of maven. Its option will be in right click on your parent project -> maven -> update project.
