Re: [m2e-users] My <packaging>jar</packaging> project won't generate a jar under Kepler/m2e 1.4

Never touched .settings/org.eclipse.wst.common.component, but its contents are
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><project-modules id="moduleCoreId"/>
We have developers on Linux/OSX/Windows, and we all create our .projects via Import... Existing Maven Projects with no modification.
Up until now it has been enough to specify


and populate that folder via maven-dependency-plugin (unpack-dependencies), exec-maven-plugin (to minify/combine JS and convert LESS to CSS) and maven-resources-plugin (copy-resources to ${}).  Our webapp project (<package>war) would then consume/deploy the JAR within eclipse.
I tried deleting my projects, closing eclipse, nuking all the .project, .classpath and .settings folders, re-starting eclipse and re-importing the Existing Maven Projects.
Looked at the newly-generated jsclient/.settings/org.eclipse.wst.common.component and its contents are now

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><project-modules id="moduleCoreId" project-version="1.5.0">
        <wb-module deploy-name="jsclient">
            <wb-resource deploy-path="/" source-path="/src/main/java"/>
STILL no love in auto-deploying jsclient-{version}.jar to webapp’s WEB-INF/lib folder.
I went back to a fresh Juno/m2e 1.3.1 install and went through the same process.  jsclient/.settings/org.eclipse.wst.common.component looks the same as above (with the wb-module entry) and my jar is getting deployed!
At this point I’m sticking with Juno/m2e 1.3.1 so I can get some work done, but I’d sure like to figure this out someday.
Thanks for your help, and for any additional advice...

If you want WTP to deploy the content of your ${}/jar  directory, it needs to be added to your .settings/org.eclipse.wst.common.component.

m2e-wtp doesn't configure that file to deploy anything other than the build output and web source directories. You must have set it manually before. Given the "invalid values" error you have, it looks like that file is borked for some reason.

Could you show us the content of your pom.xml? I'd expect WTP to generate a proper jar if your js resources are stored under src/main/resources

I have an eclipse project / Maven module (I'll call it "jsclient") with jar packaging for my web application's client _javascript_.
My "webapp" project/module (war packaging) has "jsclient" as a dependency, such that jsclient-{version}.jar is served from the application server's WEB-INF/lib directory.  That is until upgrading to Kepler/m2e 1.4
The jsclient-{version}.jar does appear in the magical fakerepo folder, but has 0 bytes.
Being a _javascript_ project, I have nothing in src/main/java.  I set my <outputDirectory> to ${}/jar and have an empty <resources></resources> -- I populate the jar directory using a combination of maven-dependency-plugin and exec-maven-plugin, which I have configured in <pluginManagement><lifecycleMappingMetadata>
This of course works from the mvn command line and worked in the previous version of m2e.
I don't know whether these other symptoms are related:
  - In my project's properties dialog I see the error
    "The currently displayed page contains invalid values."
    when navigating to the Deployment Assembly section
  - The target folder of my jsclient project is often hidden from my Navigator View - this is the first time I've ever seen the Navigator View not show me everything.
Thanks in advance for any troubleshooting advice.  I'm happy to privately email my full POM.
