Karl Heinz Marbaise commented on MSHADE-287:

What was causing that issue which is related to classpath order in the WAR 
file? (I'm not talking about the order itself)..What is loaded/used etc. which 
is depending on the order?  You are talking about a file.list? Is that used 
somewhere in your own code ?

>                 Key: MSHADE-287
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MSHADE-287
>             Project: Maven Shade Plugin
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Jürgen Weber
>            Priority: Major
> Shade Plugin should be able to honor classpath order semantics: -cp 
> a.jar:b.jar has the effect that resources in b.jar are not visible if also in 
> a.jar
> It should be possible to have the same effect with Shade Plugin: iterate for 
> last to first in classpath: extract current element overwriting content of 
> previous extracted.
> use case:
> running an app with Maven has a defined classpath order, whereas the order of 
> jars in WEB-INF/lib is rather random. So you could build an ueber jar 
> containing all jars of lib which would result in the desired class order.
> This is currently not possible with 
> org.apache.maven.plugins.shade.ShadeRequest as the input jars are in a 
> java.util.Set which has no order.
