Is there a way to force maven(2.0.9) to include all the dependencies in a single jar file?

I have a project the builds into a single jar file. I want the classes from dependencies to be copied into the jar as well.

I know that I can't just include a jar file in a jar file. I'm searching for a way to unpack the jars that are specified as dependencies and package the class files into my jar.
