    Default creating executable with maven

    Hi,

    I'm trying to create an executable jar from a swing application using maven and its maven-assembly-plugin. It builds ok, I saw in the jar it packs the dependent jars, but it contains non of my own programmed classes, resulting in a classnotfound exception when double clicking on the jar.

    Can anyone help me out? Is this the easiest way for creating an excecutable for a swing application or are there better ways?

    I don't find a usable example on the internet. Does anyone has a simple example (or url)?

    the configuration I used is:

    <plugins>
    <plugin>
    <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
    <artifactId>maven-assembly-plugin</artifactId>
    <configuration>
    <descriptorRefs>
    <descriptorRef>jar-with-dependencies</descriptorRef>
    <descriptorRef>src</descriptorRef>
    </descriptorRefs>
    <archive>
    <manifest>
    <mainClass>be.....presentation.MyApp</mainClass>
    </manifest>
    </archive>
    </configuration>
    <executions>
    <execution>
    <id>attach-assembly-to-package</id>
    <phase>package</phase>
    <goals>
    <goal>attached</goal>
    </goals>
    </execution>
    </executions>
    </plugin>

    This plugin is in the parent class containing the modules. It has 6 modules, from which the presentation module contains the main class. The other modules are dependencies of the presentation module.
