By default, the repackage goal will replace the original artifact with the repackaged one. That's a sane behaviour for modules that represent an app but if your module is used as a dependency of another module, you need to provide a classifier for the repackaged one.

The reason for that is that application classes are packaged in BOOT-INF/classes so that the dependent module cannot load a repackaged jar's classes. If that is the case or if you prefer to keep the original artifact and attach the repackaged one with a different classifier, configure the plugin as follows:


This configuration will generate two artifacts: the original one and the repackaged counter part produced by the repackage goal. Both will be installed/deployed transparently.
