I am using a plugin that creates a directory within the target dir to store information as well as a timestamp on when some files were last processed.
When using m2e, as far as I know, the clean build only removes specific folders. Is there a way to configure this?
The folder created by the mentioned plugin is never deleted, but the resources it generated are (because they are seen as web resources in the m2e-wtp folder). This is causing problems and my original goal was to configure the "clean" to also clean this directory. However I haven't found anyway to do this. Can I add something to the pom to do this?
I also tried adding the maven-clean-plugin to my pom as well as a lifecycle-mapping to execute a true maven clean on every non-incremental build, but through the eclipse clean I can't get it to execute. Is this because clean is it's own complete lifecycle? If so, then how can I make that part of an eclipse clean build?
The first attempt seems more of the correct approach to me, so long as it's something configurable in the pom. Any ideas on the best way to handle this?
