It's wrong in the sense that the glob mapper should most likely throw an
error when the "*" is missing in the 'to' attribute.

You can't use the glob mapper to concatenate files like this, and even
if it worked, plain concatenation wouldn't work with .jar files.

Use <concat> for plain concatenation.
Use <jar> or <zip> with <zipfileset> for concatenation of JAR/ZIP files.
