Subject Re: Packaging up pre-existing jar and source jar
Date Wed, 16 Jan 2013 21:26:27 GMT
If you want them both in one artifact:
Use a "pom" packaging type with the dependencies  lib.jar and 
Use the Assembly plugin to make a jar with both jars inside.

If you want them as individual artifacts:
If you are running Nexus as your Maven Repository, I think that you can 
just upload each jar and Nexus will generate a minimal POM with the 
specified GAV that can be downloaded by Maven just like any jar that you 
built from sources.
