> There is a widespread need to build ZIP archives as main artefacts. This can be done
in several ways (like <packaging>zip</packaging> and providing an explicit artifact
name ending on ".zip"), but while it a JAR can be built using a five-lines-POM, building a
ZIP becomes a rather complex task in comparison and needs rather lengthy research in the manuals...
:-(
> So I want to propose to allow follow the most intuitive way in future maven releases:
<packaging>zip</packaging>
> + This is the most intuitive way, particulary for new users. Virtually everybody would
try this if he wants to get a ZIP. No need for any user documentation to use it.
> + This is the most simple way and concise way to write what one wants to get.
> + This should be most simple to code and test as it is the base code of <packaging>jar</packaging>.
> + It allows people to declare ZIP-PACKAGED instead of ZIP-NAMED artefacts, what is a
semantic difference: A ZIP typically has no MANIFEST.MF file.
