Subject Re: <exclude> doesn't really exclude a dependency
Date Mon, 21 Jun 2010 12:37:25 GMT

Hi infinity2heaven,

Include org and module name in your exclude - at a minimum org. Your example
has module name only.

<exclude org="com.springsource" name="com.springsource.javax.el" />

You'll need to look at the repo ivy.xml or pom.xml to determine the correct
organisation and module names.
