Maven - compile into a jar and war the same time

Hi guys! Anybody knows how i might compile a maven project both into a war and a jar the same time.

I would need this for a project in which i use GWT and the same java file will get compiled into a java class to use on server side (thus i need a jar as a dependency) and into js which needs to be overlay-ed with my project (thus the war dependency).

If you have an idea about how to handle this otherwise, please share.

Thanks, Cristian

The Maven paradigm is one project, one object. Usually, if you want to produce 2 objects, you'd make them sub-projects of a common project.

True. Anyway, when you try to do what i was trying to do you should know something is wrong
I managed to obtain the same effect by some war overlay configuration.

Thanks for the alarm signal.
