log4j.xml not copied to build folder [message #549245] Mon, 26 July 2010 05:06 Go to next message

Hello,

I posted the same question already to the WTP forum, but finally noticed that it is more related to the JDT.

I have a maven project (using the m2 plugin) configured as dynamic web project. In the folder src/main/resources (which is configured in Build Path properties as one of the source folders without any file excluding) there are several configuration files, one of those is log4j.xml. The Build folder is target/classes.

For some reasons which I don't understand all files - including several xml files - in the folder src/main/resources are copied to target/classes but not the log4j.xml.
I always have to copy it manually to target/classes.

The same behaviour does occur when I delete the log4j.xml from src/main/resources and add it again -> it won't be copied.

My question is: has anybody an explanation about this behaviour or could it be that the file is copied but somehow deleted straight away?

Best regards,

Abid

The file is probably getting filtered while copying. Look at Preferences->Java->Compiler->Building->Output Folder->Filtered Resources

I finally found the problem.

Like I said, it is a maven project. In the pom.xml there was an exclude statement considering the log4j.xml.

It seems the m2 plugin hooks into the copying process of the JDT and copies the resources according to the pom.xml instead of the build path properties.

Thanks for you help.

Regards,

Abid
