Hi Tim,

I've had a related issue, where I wanted all of the resources and libraries for a cTAKES application
bundled into a single jar file. The Maven solution that works for me is to add the following
to your pom's plugins section:


I then call Maven with the following goals:

clean compile assembly:single

This generates a single jar file with all of your dependencies.

I think this is also an area where Maven integration was a small step backwards (I greatly
appreciate the steps forward it allowed). I used to run stuff from the command line and in
scripts more often but it's slightly less straightforward setting up the classpath with maven
-- before you could put a simple java -cp lib/*.jar <class name> in a script, now I'm
not sure how to go about it using maven. I'm sure there's a way, but I am afraid of falling
down the maven rabbit hole.
