> type zip for packaging ?
> ------------------------
>                 Key: MNG-1683
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>         Environment: not significant
>            Reporter: Olivier Lamy
>             Fix For: 2.1-alpha-1
>         Attachments: maven-war-plugin.tar.gz, maven-zip-plugin.tar.gz, MNG-1683.tar.gz,
> Hi,
> I don't know if the artifact type zip exists (I think not after few test).
> But I want to separate the html content and the webapp content (classes, configuration
files and so on).
> The use case is to separate this different works (html designer and java developpement)
and production installation (one is to an http server and the other is on an app server) in
two artifacts with separate versionning.
> But the <packaging>zip</packaging> is not recognized.
> Then I would like to use it as an artifact with maven's features (snapshot, pom, version,
goals : install, deploy release and all others).
> Add it to the webapp dependencies (needed only for developpment or unit tests).
> With this type of dependency the zip content could be unpacked to a directory in the
exploded webapp. (certainly need hack on the maven-war-plugin).
> I have certainly the workaround to declare this as jar and using the assembly plugin
to generate a zip. 
> But I can't use install release deploy or something else to manage the generated zip
which is not an artifact.
> Thanks for help or workaround.
> - Olivier
