Ok. I'll keep using my modified version until 1.5 comes out. ;)
Thanks for the quick reply.
I'm thinking about a further improvement of my patch and I'd like to
have the list's opinion...
I think "update=true" should disable required attributes only if the
war/ear actually exists, otherwise one could use it to "cheat" and
create a war/ear without specifying a webxml/appxml.
Please let me know if it does make sense, otherwise I won't even try to
implement it.
