Write into the MANIFEST file

Easy with the Maven jar plugin. The following example adds 2 entries (Project-name and Project-version) in the MANIFEST file.

 <plugin>
   <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
      <artifactId>maven-jar-plugin</artifactId>
      <version>2.2</version>
      <configuration>
         <archive>
            <manifestEntries>
               <Project-name>${project.name}</Project-name>
               <Project-version>${project.version}</Project-version>
            </manifestEntries>
         </archive>
      </configuration>
 </plugin>
