Hello!

I have a maven project where most of the files are java files and I have no problem adding those to the build. I also have a .class file (and don't have the java source), which I need to include in the "classes" directory, How can I do this?

Thanks,
Ron

1. Bundle in a jar
2. Version it
3. deploy to repository.

Hi, thanks for help :)

I have already tried this using jar cf filename1 filename2, It does not work. It also seems that it does not create the folders for the packaging as I need. Could you provide instructions?
The only file that I have is in the package com/folder1/folder2/theClassFile.class

Thanks,
Ron

Hi! Thank you for the advice. Turns out that saying
jar cf file.jar file.java
you can aslo say
jar cf file.jar filedirectory

Which is what I needed. Just one final question what do you mean by versioning it?

Thanks!

With Maven projects including a lot of  modules with dependencies versioning is important.
Maven release-plugin helps you keep updated versions - which is also part of the release processing.

This  plugin is very useful although not widely known.
