The Aar plugin allows the packaging of an Axis 2 service aar in 3 different modes:

  • aar (default): generates the aar artifact
  • inplace: package the aar in the source tree
  • exploded : package an exploded aar application

Each mode is materialized by a goal. For instance, to generate an exploded aar from the current project, one would type

  mvn aar:exploded
