Subject [m2] Filtering web.xml?
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2008 23:32:01 GMT
I'm building a web application (packaging WAR), and I need to run the
web.xml file through a filter to set certain configutation values. I
tried adding it to a <resource> tag, but that causes Maven to make a
copy of it and put it in WEB-INF/classes subdirectory with all of the
rest of the resources. I tried setting <targetPath> to WEB-INF, but then
Maven creates WEB-INF/classes/WEB-INF, and puts it in the deeper of the
two. I expect that this is because the phase where the the <resources>
tag is processed is before the phase where the WAR file (and thus the
WEB-INF directory I wish to target) is created. I'm guessing the
generate-sources and package phases, respectively?

So, how can I get maven to filter web.xml, but still put it where it
needs to go in the WAR structure?

Thanks in advance,
