Subject [jira] Created: (MWAR-86) Split the WAR file creation as a separate goal
Date Fri, 01 Dec 2006 15:40:41 GMT
Split the WAR file creation as a separate goal

                 Key: MWAR-86
             Project: Maven 2.x War Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.0.1, 2.0, 2.0.2
            Reporter: Simone Gianni
            Priority: Minor

It would be nice to have a separate goal that zips the WAR file. This way it will be possible
to write (and use) plugins that manipulates the WAR folder before the WAR file is built (like
applying patches, reorganizing site structure and similar stuff).

Also, there are some plugins (like the cocoon deploy plugin) that actually extend the war
plugin to operate "in the middle". This could be avoided (IIUC) adding these separate goal
in the WAR plugin.

It should be quite trivial to do, I volunteer for trying.
