Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-820) Global Exclusions Fail to Work Transitively
Date Thu, 22 May 2008 20:23:56 GMT


Julian commented on IVY-820:

I have done some additionally testing and found that Ivy is indeed resolving these as expected,
but since I was not using configurations, the excludes made were being included in the the
ivy:cachefileset tag in Ant.  The source is b/c the ivy:cachefileset tag defaults to the "*"
configuration when none is supplied.  This configuration seems to ignore global excludes.
 My issue was resolve once I set the conf attribute on the cachefileset tag.  If this is not
a bug, then the documentation should clearly indicate that a "*" configuration overrides global
exclude declarations.

> When declaring a global exclusion, the module is excluded only from locally declared
dependencies, and not their transitive dependencies.  The only way to exclude a module from
an entire project, is to declare the exclusion locally for every dependency that either directly,
or through a transitive dependency, relies on the module.  A detailed explanation of this
issue can be found on the mailing lists here (first two posts explain the issue more thoroughly):
