How to correctly compile Thrift using Maven

The is old and largely unmaintained (last updated 2013). It should not be used anymore. The correct plugin to use is org.apache.thrift:thrift-maven-plugin which was last updated in 2017.

 The main problem with the maven-thrift-plugin and the thrift-maven-plugin is that it doesn't correctly integrate with the maven generate-sources command (at-least for Maven 3.8.4). The way to fix that is to change the generated sources to be placed in the src/main directory of the maven package. The `<generator>java</generator>` is to fix some of the backward incompatible changes on the thrift compiler's command line (usually shows up as an error: "unknown option java:hashcode"). 

Adding the following to your pom.xml will allow a process where the thrift files can be manually updated with a local command the rest of the compile is straightforward. 

<!-- Note: trigger rebuild of java classes from thrift with
$ mvn thrift:compile
or alternatively
$ mvn org.apache.thrift:thrift-maven-plugin:compile
