Subject Configuring components.xml into assembly plugin
Date Fri, 05 Feb 2010 07:50:42 GMT

I have a components.xml definition that tells the assembly plugin to
use the ZipArchiver when configured with <format>ext</format>, where
'ext' is a new file extensions to use instead of zip.  The component
element looks as follows:


I can get this to work if I compile my own copy of the assembly
plugin, updating it's plexus/components.xml to include the
definitions, but the documentation seems to hint at a better way.

I've just started trying to include the definition through
<containerDescriptorHandler /> as follows:


I'm not sure if this is the right approach, but it gives me this gives
me the following error:

Assembly is incorrectly configured: null

Assembly: null is not configured correctly: Cannot find
ContainerDescriptorHandler with hint: ext

I searched for examples, but can't find anything that clearly
describes what I'm trying to do.  Any pointers or ideas on how to
fix/do this would be greatly appreciated.

Regards, Graham.
