      Description

      Currently, packaging (JAR, WAR, etc) uses all the included files to create a Zip package, but there's no intermediary expanded form. For example, to run a Web app from the expanded WAR.

      One possible implementation: adding an option to ZipTask that will layout the files in a temporary directory and compress that. This can be used for different packaging types, also for tweaking package manifests when building an EAR.

        Another use case that I had in mind for this is using the expanded directory of an EAR or WAR during development. This makes UI (editing JSP's, etc.) work and hot deploys go much faster when running the code in a local container.
