Subject [jira] Commented: (MWAR-26) Do not overwrite target unless source is modified
Date Mon, 13 Mar 2006 19:22:30 GMT
    [ ] 

Andres March commented on MWAR-26:

This will be a significant patch, since FileUtils currently does all the copying.  I will
have a go at it and see if I can put something together.  Is there any common apache or codehaus
libraries that have this type of "copy only if modified" feature?

> I thought MWAR-8 had fixed my issue but it seems to still exist.  Correct me if I'm wrong
but doing incremental builds with this war plugin is not possible.  All the web app sources
get overwritten regardless if they have been modified or not.  Incremental build were possible
in Maven 1 because it was ANT based.  This version uses plexus FileUtils which overwrites
without regard to if the target file exists or older than the source.  Besides the time issue,
overwriting the web.xml each time makes my context reload since the context runs on tomcat
from the target location.  I think this is a reasonable configuration but if there is a better
way, let me know.  Building inplace wars is not an option as it dirties the source.
