Subject [m2] Nested jars
Date Tue, 13 Sep 2005 18:43:51 GMT
The resulting artifact of a project A is a directory containing jar files, 
binaries and resources and I package this in a jar, or even a zip or rpm 
(if I had such a packaging  plugin)

A  jar/zip/rpm
        - nested1.jar
        - nested2.jar
        - resources/binaries
        - META-INF/ is an OSGI manifest that specifies nested1.jar and nested2.jar 
using the Bundle-ClassPath.

Consider now another project B that has a dependency on A.  When building 
B, I don't want its classpath to contain A, but instead I want it to 
contain nested1.jar and nested2.jar.

Is it possible to nest jars this way? Or would something like this require 
a custom process-resources plugin?
