Before I plough head long into this, I'm not asking for someone else to develop a solution to this problem; I am more than happy to spend my time producing a solution. I just wanted a feel as to what others think (maybe there is already a solution that I have missed).
Having read Olivier Lamy's issue (http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-1683), I have downloaded and used his submitted plugin. It works great, but it does not achieve everything that I need to. The additional functionality I need is the ability to include all the dependencies (jars etc) in the zip so that the package can act as a semi-automatic installation; unzip and with a single command start a JVM running.
Now the way I see things is that I could take the maven-war-plugin and amend it to perform the above. So my questions are these:
- Is that an agreeable thing to the developers of the maven-war-plugin?
- Is it a bit of overkill?
All very newbie questions, but I thought it was best to ask them anyway.
Does anyone else have any interest in a plugin that can achieve the above, and is there any other requirements that you can think of?
