Uber JAR with Maven

By default maven is generating a small JAR file, which just contains your compiled classes and other project files. If you want to have a single JAR file which also includes all dependent JAR files, you have to create a uber JAR. You can do that with the maven shade plugin. Just put this lines of xml into your pom.xml.


In Maven you can solve every problem. You just need enough XML code for that. If you still have problems, than probably your pom.xml is to short. 🙂
