Subject [jira] Created: (MNG-5013) Allow to condense configuation of plugin parameter beans that commonly require only one value

Allow to condense configuation of plugin parameter beans that commonly require only one value
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MNG-5013
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-5013
             Project: Maven 2 & 3
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Plugins and Lifecycle, POM
    Affects Versions: 3.0.2
            Reporter: Benjamin Bentmann
            Priority: Minor


Let's take this example configuration snippet:
{code:xml}
<resources>
  <resource>
    <directory>src/foo</directory>
    <filtering>true</filtering>
  </resource>
  <resource>src/bar</resource>
</resources>
{code}
Apparently, the last {{<resource>}} element is meant as a shorthand form for {{<resource><directory>src/bar</directory></resource>}}.

Not only does support for this notation save users a few bits of (sometimes hated) XML but
it also provides plugin authors with a smooth upgrade path say when a parameter was initially
typed as {{File[]}} but later needs to be extended into {{Bean[]}}.
