I have generated artifacts for a webservice using WSDL. However I am unable to package them in a jar.
I am trying to generate a jar file for all the class files of the artifacts which are under com/fmr/brokerage

Following is the code snippet.

after checking the jar using 'jar -tf mvn_edb-1.0.0-edb.jar' i get

I would appreciate any guidance.
Thank you.

Exactly where, relative to ${basedir}, is "com/fmr/brokerage"? (Oh, I see it in the screenshot you attached...)

Why are you running the jar plugin during the compile phase? What is the packaging type defined in your pom.xml? Is it war or jar?

Also, for the <includes> I would use <include>com/fmr/brokerage/**/*.class</include>. The "/target/classes" is implied (via classesDirectory property), and could actually be causing the classes to not match the include pattern (if I read the docs correctly, the include pattern is relative to classesDirectory).

Thank you Peter Johnson.

What you suggested worked for us.

I am creating the jar during compile phase just to check the contents of the jar generated without wasting much time
for packaging.I wont be doing so on the production.

Thanks once again.
I agree. Here's the link:
