Subject [jira] Commented: (MWAR-244) Provide a mechanism for not including or having an empty webapp directory
Date Mon, 06 Dec 2010 21:02:03 GMT


Mike Calmus commented on MWAR-244:

I do blame the parent pom.

However, an empty webResrouces block doesn't get rid of the settings. There seems no way to
do so. Having one would be nice.
