This doesn't appear to be getting any love...
Using WAR overlays is a basic, commonly used feature for creating a webapp. Shared resources are often push into a separate WAR so that they can be maintained in a single location and shared/overlayed among many other projects. In addition to sharing the resources, people commonly put parameters in them (such as an XML config file that has a database URL parameter) and apply different values based on Maven build profiles. Maven's WAR plugin handles this by allowing resources to be filtered after overlayed. However, there doesn't seem to be a way to filter those overlayed resources when using jetty:run. Running jetty:run-war can take quite a bit of time to build a WAR with overlays and doesn't offer a mechanism to edit JSPs in-place in a safe manner (other than in the build directory, which is not safe when running mvn clean).
I am using maven-jetty-plugin 7.x, although this issue specifies 6.1.14.
1) Is there a current feature that satisfies this request?
2) If not, is this request going to be considered?
