Filtering the sources

Filtering the content of the src/main/application directory or the one defined by the earSourceDirectory parameter is as easy as:

  <build>
    <plugins>
      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
        <artifactId>maven-ear-plugin</artifactId>
        <version>2.9</version>
        <configuration>
           <filtering>true</filtering>
           [...]
        </configuration>
      </plugin>
    </plugins>
  </build>

Note that the standard properties are available for filtering. It is also possible to specify a set of property files to add extra values if necessary. The configuration below uses also the properties defined in src/main/filters/config.properties

  <build>
    <plugins>
      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
        <artifactId>maven-ear-plugin</artifactId>
        <version>2.9</version>
        <configuration>
           <filtering>true</filtering>
           <filters>
             <filter>src/main/filters/config.properties</filter>
           </filters>
           [...]
        </configuration>
      </plugin>
    </plugins>
  </build>
