Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-820) Global Exclusions Fail to Work Transitively
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2008 22:21:44 GMT


Maarten Coene commented on IVY-820:

I don't think your code snippets illustrate a bug. The excludeRule must know from which configurations
it must exclude the artifact. So, it seems logical to me that your first example won't work.
For your second example, "*" is not a configuration, so it doesn't work as well.

I still couldn't reproduce the original problem where the exclude is defined in an ivy.xml

> 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):
