Hello Arvydas,

I wanted to give your maven plugin a try, so I took the pom.xml from
Gluon's HelloFX and tried to make it work with Kawa sources instead of Java.

I wonder what I'm doing wrong in my pom.xml -

mvn kawa:run works, and mvn compile claims it succeeded, but I don't see
any class files in the target output directory, in fact, it's empty.

hangul:kawa-javafx-graalvm (main) % mvn compile

I wonder if this has to do with the fact that Kawa doesn't seem to be
handling the main method correctly (see the warnings saying "no use of

Any ideas? Per, maybe you know what's missing? I noticed that I get the
error even if I just run kawa --main -C src/main/scheme/main.scm, so it
might not have to do with the Maven plugin.
