I have a "master" pom that many projects share and inherit common build, report, dependency, etc. functionality from. I would like all of my .war projects to inherit from this "master" pom including my overlays and my projects that use the overlay.
In my master pom I have:
This obviously causes a problem when the overlay war is created because it cannot overlay itself with itself. So I get the error:
"overlay[ id com.mycompany.app:my-overlay] is not a dependency of the project."
I tried overriding the war plugin in the overlay pom and removed the overlays but there seemed to be some kind of inheritance thing going on where the overlays were still being added no matter what I did. (Might be a different issue?)
Anyway, another way to fix this issue might be to use the "skip" attribute??? But I get the same error using <skip>true</skip>. Would it be possible to allow the "skip" attribute to be tested prior to overlay dependency checking? I've provided an example project of how I would like skip to function in a clean way that might help this problem of circular overlays.
