At least the boilerplate uses the assembly plugin rather than c-m-p.   
I'm not sure you will be able to get the assembly plugin to generate  
a .car file without switching to using the c-m-p.  I think it would be  
nice to use c-m-p instead of the assembly plugin here but I'm not sure  
what you'd need to do.  You might need to use the deployment plugin to  
copy a bunch of jars ( to a temp area and  
the antrun plugin to copy them to the appropriate (e.g. bin/ 
server.jar) location.  I tried out some stuff like this in rev

  related to GERONIMO-4302: that had some other problems that caused  
me to revert the change.

I hope you can get this to work one way or another without too much  
hair-pulling :-)
