I would like to create a single jar artifact that contains all dependent jars in exploded form. This way we don't have to mess around with really long classpath declarations when we execute our app.
When I generate an Ant build script for a project that has a Jar artifact, the Ant script uses <zipfileset> to include all dependent jars. This has the effect of embedding the dependent jars into the artifact jar as nested jars.
Using <zipgroupfileset> instead will unpack the dependant jars and insert them directly as class files into the artifact jar ("exploded").
Is there any way to get Idea to use <zipgroupfileset> instead of <zipfileset> in the generated ant script? I'd really rather not have to hand modify the generated script each time I generate a new one (which is a pretty frequent occurrence).
I think this may be related to IDEA-51729
