Subject [vote] Allowing Ant-based plugins to use file-based resources
Date Fri, 06 Oct 2006 22:33:24 GMT

I chatted with Kenney briefly about allowing ant-based plugins to  
unpack resources from a known location to a known location so they  
things like shell scripts can be executed.

So, in a nutshell I would like to add some capability to unpack the  
resources in an ant-based plugin JAR to ${basedir}/target/<artifact- 
id> and from there if the ant scripts want to reference file based  
resources they can. My particular use case is a user that wants to  
leverage all the bash and perl they have already use with their ant  
builds but they want them to be reusable.

If no one objects I'll do the work on trunk and then merge it to the  
branch. It's a new feature but it's super simple (10 lines) and it  
would certainly be useful in 2.0.5.
