Deploy to tomcat using wildcards?

Is it possible to deploy a WAR file named like "my-project-*.war" using the tomcat plugin?

This is because the WAR file was packaged in other job, and the resulted WAR is shared using "shared artifacts". Is this procedure correct or common?

I can change de final name to exclude de version number (the wildcard is used to match this version number), but I prefer this name because the file is also copied using SCP.

Hi Ignacio,

Using wildcards to expand the path of the war file isn't possible right now. I've raised a feature request to add this to the Tomcat task - please watch and vote for it :)


Another way to solve this problem is to symlink the newly created war in the same job that created it. So that you can have the same file name irrespective of the file name with date and timestamps.
