Required Parameters

Name Type Since Description
cacheFile File 2.1-alpha-1 The file containing the webapp structure cache.
Default value is: ${project.build.directory}/war/work/webapp-cache.xml.
warSourceDirectory File - Single directory for extra files to include in the WAR. This is where you place your JSP files.
Default value is: ${basedir}/src/main/webapp.

Optional Parameters

Name Type Since Description
archive MavenArchiveConfiguration - The archive configuration to use. See Maven Archiver Reference.
archiveClasses boolean 2.0.1 Whether a JAR file will be created for the classes in the webapp. Using this optional configuration parameter will make the compiled classes to be archived into a JAR file and the classes directory will then be excluded from the webapp.
Default value is: false.
User property is: archiveClasses.

User property is: maven.war.containerConfigXML.
dependentWarExcludes String - Deprecated. Use <overlay>/<excludes> instead
dependentWarIncludes String - Deprecated. Use <overlay>/<includes> instead
escapeString String 2.1-beta-1 Expression preceded with this String won't be interpolated. \${foo} will be replaced with ${foo}.
User property is: maven.war.escapeString.
escapedBackslashesInFilePath boolean 2.1-alpha-2 To escape interpolated values with Windows path c:\foo\bar will be replaced with c:\\foo\\bar.

  • type
  • includes (a list of string patterns)

recompressZippedFiles boolean 2.3 Indicates if zip archives (jar,zip etc) being added to the war should be compressed again. Compressing again can result in smaller archive size, but gives noticeably longer execution time.
Default value is: true.

Default value is: ${project.build.sourceEncoding}.
User property is: resourceEncoding.
supportMultiLineFiltering boolean 2.4 Stop searching endToken at the end of line
