Stephane Nicoll updated MEAR-137:

    Fix Version/s: 2.6

> Support for JEE Application Clients
> -----------------------------------
>                 Key: MEAR-137
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x Ear Plugin
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>         Environment: any
>            Reporter: Pablo Rodriguez
>             Fix For: 2.6
>         Attachments: maven-ear-plugin
> Currently the maven ear plugin only supports JEE application clients by defining them
as jarmodules with <includeInApplicationXML>true</true>. This is a bit to hacky
as Applicaiton client modules are first class EAR citizens as ejb, war and rar modules.
> The patch provided here is half of my attempt to upgrade this application client modules
to be maven ear first citizens.
> I have created a maven-car-plugin defining a packaging type 'car' (in same manner as
war, ejb or rar).
> The patch provided here, adds support to maven-ear-plugin to recognize the 'car' packaging
type, include the artifact in the root of the ear and adds the corresponding entry to application.xml
> Note that i would like this to be temporary and would prefer to see the car packaging
type, the maven-car-plugin be core maven plugins with gorupid org.maven.plugins as there is
no reason for application clients not having same support as war, ejb or rar modules.
> I feel this extra module, packaging type and plugin are needed as confusion has been
arising around application clients
