Subject [jira] Commented: (JS2-338) In certain cases j2:portal.genapp overwrites the existing project's project.xml

    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/JS2-338?page=comments#action_12319448 ] 

Ate Douma commented on JS2-338:

Hmm, to be honest, I don't really like that.
You lose information that way and you can't see/compare one set of portal resources from the
other anymore.

But, I think there is an easy solution: 
why not provide a j2:war-resources (or even a j2:war) which uses copy with overwrite=true
for merging the resources?

That way you are assured your own resources are copied. The j2:war-resources would only merge
them, a j2:war can perform the full war goal if you like.

And of course, you/everyone can still choose not to use this solution but provide a custom
one with pre/post goals in a local maven.xml.

> This happens any time initMavenPlugin is called after the creation of a custom portal's
project.xml or if the the maven plugin's project.xml has a newer timestamp then the custom
portal's project.xml.  Even though the overwrite on the copy task in the plugin has overwrite="false"
this does not help the case when the plugin's project.xml has a more recent timestamp.  All
the overwrite="false" does is force the copy command to respect timestamps, which it does
do.  However, this does not prevent the maven plugin's project.xml with a newer timestamp
from overwriting the local project's project.xml.
> A check needs to be put in place to prevent the copy based on the prior existence of
a local project.xml.
