For many years I was missing the following feature of Maven: In a multi-module project, when I build a single module in a jar, I want it to be installed into the running environment (app server) seamlessly. During these years I created various scripts for this tasks, why none of them lasted too long: it's very hard to create a generic script, while nongeneric scripts need to be maintained and actually each module must have had its own script. Duh.
Thinking about it, I decided that it should be a Maven plugin, which is very simple - during the install phase, search some predefined location and hotswap the found jars. That's it. So I thought that somebody probably already thought about it and asked a question at Stackoverflow. I received few interesting answers, but not a simple plugin I needed.
So I decided to implement it myself. It took me few hours, since it was my first Maven plugin, so I had some "doing it for the first time" troubles. But finally I did it.
You are welcome to use it, and as always any feedback is appreciated.
