Subject [jira] [Created] (MSHADE-304) Include specific files or directories for transformation - IncludeResourceTransformer?
Date Wed, 21 Nov 2018 13:08:00 GMT
Alex created MSHADE-304:

             Summary: Include specific files or directories for transformation -  IncludeResourceTransformer?
                 Key: MSHADE-304
             Project: Maven Shade Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 3.2.1
            Reporter: Alex
         Attachments: default


I am working at a project with the DI framework HK2.

With HK2 it is possible to use _hk2-metadata-generator_ to generate a file ("META-INF/hk2-locator/default")
containing all annotated @Service classes (and @ConfiguredBy annotations)  for the auto-discovery
feature in HK2.

For the configuration part (@ConfiguredBy) of HK2 i am using maven dependency hk2-configuration-integration

See for more details also:

Example @ConfiguredBy annotation: [] 




With maven-shade i was able to configure relocation for specific dependencies which might
be conflicting when used in other projects, which is a really cool feature i have to say!

Only one manual step is now necessary for me (scripted at the moment) to adapt the generated
file "META-INF/hk2-locator/default" and update the JAR to have a proper working JAR. 
See also attached example file [^default] (note the org.glassfish.hk2 scope defined there,
which would require transformation/renaming i.e. org.shaded.glassfish..).


Maybe i am missing something which already exists with maven shade plugin, but i was not able
to include a custom file to the transformation/relocation process, like in my described situation.

I also tried to use "IncludeResourceTransformer" but when looking at the code no transformation
is done there, it is just used for copying artifacts as far as i can tell? The name is a bit
misleading, isn't it?
