could you please support the maven war overlay feature?
The feature is described here:
Forgott to say, JSF Composite Components are also not recognized if war-overlay is used.
from issue 200588:
The reason that we use war overlay instead of simple jar libraries is because
of bug(s) in JBoss Weld (We use Glassfish with CDI) .
We had several problems with the cdi beans in libraries that caused the strange
class cast exceptions. After we used war overlay the problems were gone.
Also Netbeans offers more support if you create JSF Components inside a web
applications instead of a java project. Some of the code completion and wizard
seems to be only available if you develop in a web application.

We use a war overlay to provide UI code shared by multiple web applications. Packaging as a jar is not desirable b/c some of this code can't be loaded from the classpath such as JS, CSS, images.
IntelliJ supports this feature natively and the Eclipse project file can be edited to make it work. Implementing this would help make Netbeans competitive with these other IDEs.
I am using Maven Overlays to share Tag Files on several projects. And as a result, I don't have autocompletion in JSP editor for these tags.
This was scheduled to go into 8.0, but didn't make it. Are there plans to support this eventually?
We use Intellij for this feature, I'd like to try netbeans, but this feature is a must for us.
Any update for this? We're looking for Netbeans to support a modular JSF solution for us.
The target milestone has passed. Is there any indication of when this might be re-targeted?
Also interested in support for overlays.
