In IntelliJ 12.1.4 I went through
Settings --> Maven --> Importing and made sure the following was selected:
- Import Maven projects automatically
- Create IDEA modules for aggregator projects
- Keep source...
- Exclude build dir...
- Use Maven output...
- Generated souces folders: "detect automatically"
- Phase to be...: "process-resources"
- Automatically download: "sources" & "documentation"
- Use Maven3 to import project
- VM options for importer: -Xmx512m
This took me from having a lot of unresolved import statements to having everything resolved. I think the key here was using Maven3 to import project... Hopefully this helps.
