Unpacking A Module

If you need to unpack artifacts in the generated EAR, you can configure it in two ways:

  • Specify the unpack attribute on the required artifact(s)
  • Specify the comma separated list of types to unpack by default

    Note that artifacts are unpacked according to their respective URI.
