      Description

      In our project(jpa-spring-wicket) we need to filter the web.xml file, changing some placeholder and putting it (the web.xml) in $

      {project.build.directory}/${project.build.finalName}/WEB-INF/web.xml.
      Using tomcat6-maven-plugin it find the correct file, but fail when parsing it:
      <quote>
      Caused by: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Duplicate context initialization parameter contextConfigLocation
      at org.apache.catalina.core.StandardContext.addParameter(StandardContext.java:2661)

      Using tomcat7-maven-plugin it find the correct file, but ignores it so using the original file which contain the ${placeholder}. Thus not initializing the application:

      The plugin configuration:
      <quote>
      <plugin>
      <groupId>org.apache.tomcat.maven</groupId>
      <artifactId>tomcat7-maven-plugin</artifactId>
      <version>2.0-beta-1</version>
      <configuration>
      <contextPath>${project.build.finalName}</contextPath>
      <tomcatWebXml>${project.build.directory}

      /$

      {project.build.finalName}

      /WEB-INF/web.xml</tomcatWebXml>
      </configuration>
      </plugin>
      </quote>

      I have the jetty plugin setup as well and working, so I would try with tomcat but without success until now.
