Subject [jira] Created: (MRESOURCES-73) Filtering ${foo.file} evaluates to in full path to pom.xml
Date Sat, 06 Sep 2008 20:41:49 GMT
Filtering ${foo.file} evaluates to in full path to pom.xml

                 Key: MRESOURCES-73
             Project: Maven 2.x Resources Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.2
         Environment: Windows XP, Maven 2.0.2
            Reporter: Olivier Lamy
            Assignee: Olivier Lamy
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: 2.3

If an unresolved variable is encountered, the plugin simply does not replace the variable
in the target file.
If this unresolved variable however ends in ".file}" it will evaluate to a file object that
targets the current pom. This results in the replacement being the complete path to that pom
(in the 2.1 version of the plugin this results in a ClassCastException).

The workaround is, of course, not to filter the affected files. 
Though this will not work if other variables in the affected files do need to be replaced.
