Subject [jira] Created: (MEAR-113) The default contextRoot should match the default bundleFileName
Date Tue, 01 Sep 2009 12:01:41 GMT
The default contextRoot should match the default bundleFileName

                 Key: MEAR-113
             Project: Maven 2.x Ear Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.3.2
            Reporter: Michael Semb Wever

In a webModule the contextRoot defaults to 
 "/" + a.getArtifactId()

There is no way AFAIK to have a contextRoot that honours the webModule artifact's finalName,
necessary if it was dynamically set via profiles.
(The only way i see here is to duplicate all the profile information and put the maven-ear-plugin
configuration into each profile, just to insert the various contextRoot values).

By making the contextRoot instead default to 
 "/" + getBundleFileName()

this scenario is solved. 
The webModule's contextRoot defaults to the build name of the artifact if it were customised.
If that artifact's finalName was not customised then it defaults back to the artifactId therefore
maintaining today's behavior and not breaking any compatibility.

Patch attached.
