Subject [jira] Commented: (MWAR-244) Provide a mechanism for not including or having an empty webapp directory
Date Mon, 06 Dec 2010 20:54:03 GMT


Stephane Nicoll commented on MWAR-244:

blame the parent pom then. You are explicitly asking the plugin to copy some resources. Taking
it to other way around, folks would complain that the plugin does not report that a directory
does not exist while it was specified.

You can override the definition using an empty webResources element maybe. All in all, the
definition in the corporate pom seems fishy to me. Maybe you need to fix it there.

> If the configured (or default) webapp directory does not exist, the plugin throws an
IllegalArgumentException saying the directory does not exist. There should be a way to proceed
without having to create an empty directory.
