Stephane Nicoll commented on MEAR-137:
--------------------------------------

A candidate change has been added and a 2.6-SNAPSHOT has been deployed on the repository.
Only make sense if you have the acr plugin as well (a release vote is ongoing)

> Currently the maven ear plugin only supports JEE application clients by defining them
as jarmodules with <includeInApplicationXML>true</true>. This is a bit to hacky
as Applicaiton client modules are first class EAR citizens as ejb, war and rar modules.
> The patch provided here is half of my attempt to upgrade this application client modules
to be maven ear first citizens.
> I have created a maven-car-plugin defining a packaging type 'car' (in same manner as
war, ejb or rar).
> http://code.google.com/p/maven-car-plugin/
> The patch provided here, adds support to maven-ear-plugin to recognize the 'car' packaging
type, include the artifact in the root of the ear and adds the corresponding entry to application.xml
> Note that i would like this to be temporary and would prefer to see the car packaging
type, the maven-car-plugin be core maven plugins with gorupid org.maven.plugins as there is
no reason for application clients not having same support as war, ejb or rar modules.
> I feel this extra module, packaging type and plugin are needed as confusion has been
arising around application clients
