There may be a cleaner way, but here's what I do:

1. in each sub-project, resolve the dependencies to the local "lib" dir
with configurations separating the dependencies that are needed at
runtime from the ones that arent'. So I wind up with something like


2. in the "package" task for each sub-project (it probably more properly
 belongs in "publish" but I'm still tweaking this) copy all of the
"runtime" jars (the "core" directory) to a common dir

so I have something like this:

    commonlib/ :this contains all the dependent jars for all subprojects

3. then in the "master" project I just declare dependencies on the
artifacts from the subprojects like normal and resolve them to a dir
I call "assemble."  The I copy everything from the commonlib dir into
the "assemble" dir and package it.  In my case the subprojects are
typically building war files or ejb-jar files and the driver builds
an ear, but the same approach could be used for other things I guess.

Again, there might be a better way, but this seems to work for now.
