Subject [jira] Closed: (MASSEMBLY-243) Support for patching
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2008 15:42:57 GMT


John Casey closed MASSEMBLY-243.

         Assignee: John Casey
       Resolution: Won't Fix
    Fix Version/s: 2.2-beta-2

should be used in concert with the patch plugin to achieve desired results, to avoid creating
further duplication of other plugins' functionalities within the assembly plugin.

> What I'm still missing from Ant is the ability to apply patches to assemblies that you're
creating via the maven-assembly-plugin.
> In our project we're using JBoss AS bundled as a ZIP. To create a final distribution
of the product we unpack and then have to change quite some configuration files within the
JBoss AS tree. The problem right now is that for every JBoss AS update we have to re-patch
the configuration files manually. It would be great if the maven-assembly-plugin would have
inherent support for patches. That way it's also more clear what configuration section you're
changing exactly.
