I have a RescourceCopyTask that isn't executed if the target resource already exists.

I would like to be able to force the task to overwrite the target file.

But I assume you wouldn't want such a task to be executed each and every
time? Ideally it would only executed if the result were different from
the current contents, I suppose. But that could be a relatively
expensive check if source resource were a remote resource... I wonder
if a resource modify task might help in some way; isNeeded logic for
that would be perhaps more directly helpful?

My ResourceCopyTask is part of the product definition and will place a file in user.home.

This task is only intended to be executed during the initial product installation. It is not needed at every startup.

Before the installation, the file might not yet exist, or be outdated. In any case, using the copied file would be correct.


A resource modify task doesn't exist yet, does it?

Sorry, it's called a Text Modify Task.

I'm not sure it totally helps solve your problem; the file must exist to
be modified, and the modifications must be in the setup model itself...

Just thought I'd mention I have the same problem. I want to overwrite the .m2 directory with the companies settings. Force overwrite with a complete and correct config would be a lot simpler than the alternatives.

I think the same is true for the createResource task, maybe there should be an "ensureResource" resource task, that way it would be easy to change a setting and everyone will get the updated setting on next eclipse startup/manual run.
