The maven standard directory layout guidelines specify a src/main/config folder. However I notice that files included in this folder do not seem to end up in my jar file unless I specifically specify a sourceDirectory setting inside the build node of pom.xml.

Doesn't this defeat the point if I have to manually specify this folder? Is there a reason src/main/config is not treated as a source folder by default in maven? Should I be putting stuff in that folder (i.e. log4j.xml) at all? If so, what is appropriate to put there and how is it different than src/main/resources?

Application resources should go in src/main/resources: "application resources". I always assumed that src/main/config was for any other configuration stuff.
