PlexusConfiguration

This is a Work In Progress for a documentation for the Plexus Container descriptor: META-INF/plexus/plexus.xml.

An XSD will be available at http://plexus.codehaus.org/xsd/plexus-1.3.0.xsd.

Note that since plexus.xml is a superset of components.xml, this documentation only focuses on elements only available in plexus.xml.
