Package all files in Java resources’ subdirectories

Maybe mvn clean package is one of the easiest operation in java programing. Howerver, I recently encountered a problem of packaging, which took up some of my time.

Executing the package command (mvn clean package) and opening the jar with compression software (e.g. WinRAR), the file was expected to locate at BOOT-INFO/class/template. However I could not find it. Though all files in resources folder directly existed, the others in subdirectories was not there.

Helped by Google, I found the key. If we want to package all files in resources folder including files in subdirectories, we need to add these three lines to maven package config:

Oh, forget it: the config is in the <build> tag in maven pom.xml file.
