Upgrade SSE-Gateway plugin to version 1.21 or later.

This is due to a known bug in maven-resource-plugin which is used in the build stage of SSE-Gateway.


The maven-resource-plugin version 3.0.x handling of symlinks is not backward compartible with earlier versions (2.7 or lower). In previous version (2.7 or lower) symlinks in resource directory are evaluated and actual files copied. In version 3.0.x the symlink is copied verbatim causing the relative path in symlink to point to a wrong location.
