Subject simple questions - where to put unpackaged config files?
Date Thu, 11 Jul 2013 05:24:39 GMT
I've several projects that were created before we began using maven and
which we've added maven to subsequently. Obviously these projects were not
created with an archetype. Is there a "standard" folder that is commonly
used in archetypes for holding files such as application configuration files
or templates? The types of files I'm thinking of would not be put into
packaging (e.g. they wouldn't be placed into the jar, war etc. created by
maven) but would potentially be used in the install or deploy lifecycles. A
folder such as "src/main/config"?

If such an animal exists, what property would I used to reference it in a
plugin? e.g. the equivalent of "${}". Is there
such a property?

If not, is there a property that references the "src" or "src/main" folder?
${} references "src/main/java" - it would seem
to be a hack to use "../config" from there but it would work.
