I have two local maven projects
B is dependent on
A |- resources/log4j2.xml B |- resources/META-INF/log4j.xml |- Maven Dependencies |- A |- And other dependencies...
B exports the
log4j xmls to jar. However, as I only need the
B/resources/META-INF/log4j.xml to my final
B.jar, I tried to delete the
A while packing
To do the same, I used truezip:remove in
B/pom.xml as follows:
<build> ... <plugins> <plugin> <groupId>org.codehaus.mojo</groupId> <artifactId>truezip-maven-plugin</artifactId> <version>1.1</version> <executions> <execution> <id>remove-a-file-in-sub-archive</id> <goals> <goal>remove</goal> </goals> <phase>verify</phase> <configuration> <fileset> <directory>B-jar-with-dependencies.jar</directory> <includes> <include>log4j2.xml</include> </includes> </fileset> </configuration> </execution> </executions> </plugin> </plugins> ... </build>
Note that this is executed
verify state (post packaging) of lifecycle.
Though it is working as expected, I am wondering whether there is any side-effect of this or not. Any light in this regard would be great.
