Subject Re: Hooking before and after a phase
Date Sat, 09 Jun 2012 11:36:56 GMT

there is no way in Maven to insert a Mojo between two Mojo from a
packaging. Each Mojo you add in your POM will be executed after the ones
from the packaging.
If you want to execute your Mojo before any Mojo of the package phase, then
you can bind it to the prepare-package phase.

"Legacy code" often differs from its suggested alternative by actually
working and scaling.
