Subject [jira] Closed: (MASSEMBLY-252) Please create an executable archive (xar) plugin similar to war
Date Tue, 29 Nov 2011 01:06:39 GMT


Benson Margulies closed MASSEMBLY-252.

    Resolution: Not A Bug

This is a request for a new maven plugin, not a feature of the assembly plugin.

>                 Key: MASSEMBLY-252
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven 2.x Assembly Plugin
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>    Affects Versions: 2.2-beta-1
>         Environment: any
>            Reporter: Iyad Elian
> There is no archetype to build an executable jar for batchapp's. clone the war plugin
and modify slightly to have APP-INF instead of WEB-INF and command-config.xml instead of web.xml.
META-INF/MANIFEST.MF is a must. it has a main class and specifies jars under APP-INF/lib in
its classpath. artifact produced can then be executed from the command line using java -jar
<artifact>. Can contribute code if description not clear.
