      Description

      Hello.

      For a pom packaging project, running a profile with this jar configuration results in a jar containing only the META-INF folder =>
      [INFO] [jar:jar

      {execution: jar-feature}

      ]
      [WARNING] JAR will be empty - no content was marked for inclusion!

      This is the plugin configuration:

      <plugin>
      <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
      <artifactId>maven-jar-plugin</artifactId>
      <executions>
      <execution>
      <id>jar-feature</id>
      <phase>process-resources</phase>
      <configuration>
      <includes>
      <include>$

      {basedir}

      /**</include>
      </includes>
      <classifier>me</classifier>
      <forceCreation>true</forceCreation>
      </configuration>
      <goals>
      <goal>jar</goal>
      </goals>
      </execution>
      </executions>
      <inherited>false</inherited>
      </plugin>

      I tried all sorts of configurations, all sorts of paths, but it does not work, the jar is still empty (and I'm sure that the path is valid, or so I hope ).

      PS:
      Don't ask why I'm making a jar in a pom packaging project, it has to do with Maven limitations (it is a wonderful tools, but it's not perfect, and real life > any tool ). There are ways around this, but this is the most elegant solution (or I'd have to make a 2 step build which is cumbersome for the users of this build, so not an option).

      Thank you.
