Subject [jira] Commented: (MJAR-30) Allow inludes/excludes definition
Date Mon, 26 Mar 2007 05:14:40 GMT


Ilia Lewis commented on MJAR-30:

I would also like to see this capability get added.

I've got a legacy project with an ant build that currently uses Java classes to generate other
resources during the compile phase.  The unit tests use these classes as well, so I cannot
use ANTRUN to delete them after the compile phase.  These classes are then excluded from the
jar.  I can't think of any way to get rid of these files short of relying on ANTRUN to delete
them after the test phase, which feels like a hack.

I realize that if I had a brand new project that I could modify, I could find better ways
of doing this, but based on the comments I've read here and elsewhere, there seems to be a
hundred different reasons why someone would need to exclude files from the jar.
