Hey Jenny,
I'm by no mean a java expert and it doesn't seem that "snapcraft help
ant" shows up any options for achieving this.
The line of the plugin itself seems guilty: "files =
glob.glob(os.path.join(self.builddir, 'target', '*.jar'))"

Before advising you to inheirt/create your own plugin, I'm CCing Sergio
who might have another idea or may want to grow a plugin options for this.
