Creating a custom META-INF/MANIFEST.MF file in the maven-assembly-plugin

Problem

I want to add some special parameter to my MANIFEST.MF, but I'm using the maven-assembly-plugin to build my project.

Solution

Change the POM to look something like this:

       <plugin>
            <artifactId>maven-assembly-plugin</artifactId>
            <configuration>
                <archive>
                    <manifestFile>src/main/resources/MANIFEST.MF</manifestFile>
                </archive>
                <descriptorRefs>
                    <descriptorRef>jar-with-dependencies</descriptorRef>
                </descriptorRefs>
            </configuration>
        </plugin>
        <plugin>
