Subject Re: Maven-war-plugin not installing war. Installs ".jar" and renames it to ".war"
Date Wed, 03 Feb 2010 04:24:10 GMT
Shoving java code into a war project is an antipattern in Maven. Make
a module for the jar and depend upon that with a war and your life
will be better. Shoving it into the incorrect format is guaranteed to
cause you problems with tools that integrate with maven like ides.
