Subject Re: Looking for class property-substitution plugin

Hi,
The templating-m-p as stated in the documentation was exactly designed to
filter source files. Its name might not make it that obvious but it's
because the idea is to some day support other templating engines.

In your case, you have to design your source files with variables inside
and the plugin will first filter source file then add it for compilation.

The plugin uses standard maven properties. So if that properties must come
from an external file that is another issue (properties:read-properties
approximate goal name is a way to go).

Cheers
