             Summary: Ability to add Java sources to plugins classpath from 
.mvn directory
                 Key: MNG-6734
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6734
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: core
            Reporter: Abel Salgado Romero

In plugins like 
 it is possible to add Java Asciidoctor extensions and other customizations to 
the conversion process.
These need to be available to the asciidoctor-maven-plugin classpath and due to 
how maven manages plugin's dependencies, this means that users need to publish 
these extension in a maven repo or create multi-module projects like in this 
This is cumbersome and a bit of overkill when some users just want to add a 
single class.

So, I wonder if would make sense to be able to add Java sources in the ".mvn" 
directory that are compiled and added to the classpath so that maven plugins 
can use them.
Ideally, to avoid classpath issues, I'd like to be able to tell which plugins 
use the code, maybe with an XML descriptor or some directory convention.
