Is this plugin anything to do with Doxia's Almost Plain Text (APT) format?

No. This plugin is concerned with Java's Annotation Processing Tool (apt), not Doxia's Almost Plain Text (APT) format.

Why can't the Apt Maven Plugin compile my project's sources?

By design, the Apt Maven Plugin always passes the -nocompile argument to apt. This was decided upon since the Maven Compiler Plugin should be used to perform all compilation tasks.

Why do my generated test resources not appear in Eclipse?

This is because the eclipse:eclipse goal only executes up to the generate-resources phase, and hence the generated test resources are not added to the project. See MECLIPSE-37 for more information.

A workaround is to manually add target/generated-test-sources/apt as a source folder with an output folder of target/test-classes to Eclipse after running eclipse:eclipse.

Hasn't apt been merged into javac in Java 6? Can't I process sources using the Maven Compiler Plugin?

Yes it has. Hopefully this functionality will be added to the Maven Compiler Plugin in a future release. See MCOMPILER-75 for more information.
