maven: How to add resources which are generated after compilation phase

I have a maven project which uses wsgen to generate xsd files from the compiled java classes.

The problem is that I want to add the generated xsd files to the jar as resources.

Since the resource phase is running before the "process-classes" phase I can't add them.

Is there a way to add additional resource after the "process-classes" phase?

Thanks in advance,

I would suggest to define the output directory for the XSD files into target/classes (may be with a supplemental sub folder which will be packaged later during the package phase into the jar. This can be achieved by using the maven-resources-plugin.


You need to take care that the resources plugin is positioned after the plugin which is used to call the wsgen part. You can also use the prepare-package phase instead to make sure the resources will be correctly packaged.
