I have a maven project, which generates a jar file as a web project. Based on Maven I include a standalone Tomcat. Inside of the jar file, there is actually the war-file, which contains my application.
This application contains a “version.txt” in src/main/config (or any similar path), that is finally included in the war-file.
This version.txt looks like:
I would like, that maven should replace the variable with the correct version from pom.xml. In my pom.xml I have included:
<build> <resources> <resource> <directory>src/main/config</directory> <filtering>true</filtering> <includes> <include>**/version.txt</include> </includes> </resource> <resource> <resources> </build>
So is there any way to include this version.txt and a working replacement in a war-file, which is in a (Tomcat)jar-file?
My File hierarchy looks like:
jar-file -- ... --war-file ---- ... ----version.txt
I suggest you use the maven-war-plugin.
It will expect a certain directory layout, and in the examples it clearly shows how to filter (replace maven variables into the web resources)
If this solution falls short, then a more specific question based on this should should be asked later.
