I am using the install-file goal to install some OSGi bundles, Maven plugins, and Maven archetypes into my local repository. Those types have the following values for the packaging parameter:
OSGi bundle = bundle
Maven plugin = maven-plugin
Maven archetype = maven-archetype
I'm installing the archetype using the following command:
mvn install:install-file -Dfile=my-archetype-1.0.jar -DgroupId=com.example -DartifactId=my-archetype -Dversion=1.0 -Dpackaging=maven-archetype -DgeneratePom=true
That will copy that jar file to:
The file extension is wrong, should be jar, but at least the generated pom has the right packaging value. If I try to use archetype:crawl, it won't find my archetype because the file extension was not jar. I can change packaging to jar so the file extension is correct but now the generated pom has the wrong packaging value.
The install-file goal should preserve the file extension of the original file and the packaging configuration should only be used for the generated pom.
