Changing a .content.xml file locally is not reflecting in CRX after maven build

If .content.xml file is changed locally and changes are not reflecting in crx then check maven-resources-plugin.

Add below plugin in pom.xml of UI module.(aem-sample/aem-content-ui/pom.xml).

<plugin>
                <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
                <artifactId>maven-resources-plugin</artifactId>
                <executions>
                    <execution>
                        <id>copy-content-resources</id>
                        <phase>process-resources</phase>
                        <goals>
                            <goal>copy-resources</goal>
                        </goals>
                        <configuration>
                            <outputDirectory>${project.build.directory}/vault-work</outputDirectory>
                            <resources>
                                <resource>
                                    <directory>${basedir}/src/main/content</directory>
                                    <filtering>true</filtering>
                                    <excludes>
                                        <exclude>**/.svn</exclude>
                                        <exclude>**/.vlt</exclude>
                                        <exclude>**/.vltignore</exclude>
                                        <exclude>**/.DS_Store</exclude>
                                        <exclude>/etc/designs/${project.parent.artifactId}/jcr:content(/.*)?</exclude>
                                    </excludes>
                                </resource>
                            </resources>
                        </configuration>
                    </execution>
                </executions>
            </plugin>

For maven-resources-plugin check that its copying your .content.xml to target folder and for content-package-maven-plugin check that correct filter values are set.
We can also verify by extracting the generated package and check if it has the changes or not or look at a vault-work directory in target and get to the directory in which you have changed the .content.xml, verify if it has changes. If your changes are there in vault-works then the maven-resources-plugin is working absolutely fine and the issue may be with the content-package-maven-plugin.

If bundle is not installed check this post.
