Subject [jira] [Created] (MSHADE-230) Cannot specify custom manifest file in a shaded jar.

Blake created MSHADE-230:
----------------------------

             Summary: Cannot specify custom manifest file in a shaded jar.
                 Key: MSHADE-230
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MSHADE-230
             Project: Maven Shade Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.4.3
            Reporter: Blake


When a project uses the maven-jar-plugin, it's easy to include a custom (hand written) manifest
file in the jar, but I can't find a way to do the same thing with maven shade. How can I use
my own manifest file while using the "maven-shade-plugin"? 

Basic details:

My custom manifest file is located in "src/main/resources/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF". Shade is
not including my file, instead it is being replaced in the final jar with a default manifest
file.

The reason I need a custom manifest file is to specify some JavaBeans classes in my manifest,
for a swing component library. Multiple JavaBeans classes should be specified in the manifest
file in the following format, as described here: http://www.ewebprogrammer.com/java-beans/module3/javabeans-manifest-file.jsp
 (Note that the order of these lines is important. The ManifestResourceTransformer could add
the lines, but they get added out of order.)

Name: SomeBean1.class
Java-Bean: True
Name: SomeBean2.class
Java-Bean: True
Name: SomeBean3.class
Java-Bean: True

The POM file for this project is long, so I won't paste the whole thing here. However, the
current full POM for this project can be seen on github at this link: https://github.com/LGoodDatePicker/LGoodDatePicker/blob/master/Project/pom.xml

Please see the list of (unsuccessful) solutions I have tried (and additional details), which
are located here.
