The use of an expression in the targetPath of a jetty resource (filtered web.xml) in the webapp pom causes mvn eclipse:eclipse to fail with the error:
"Can't canonicalize system path:
Embedded error: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect"
For resource targetPath, the maven model says "The path is relative to the target/classes directory"
This error can be avoided by using a relative path in the targetPath
