Subject [jira] Commented: (AXIS2-3766) Maven POM has many dependencies that could well be declared optional
Date Tue, 29 Apr 2008 21:02:56 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/AXIS2-3766?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12593114#action_12593114
] 

Andreas Veithen commented on AXIS2-3766:
----------------------------------------

In axis2-parent, these artifacts (for most of them at least) are not declared as dependencies
but appear in the dependencyManagement section which specifies the versions to be used in
child projects. Also, the junit dependency you mention is only used in test scope. Most of
the dependencies you mention are declared by axis2-kernel and making them optional is not
realistic. The only way to reduce the dependencies would be to move some of the code in axis2-kernel
to separate modules. Note that there is an ongoing vote that proposes this for the different
transport implementations. Indeed, moving the transports out of axis2-kernel would reduce
the number of dependencies considerably.

> Many of the dependencies declared in axis2-parent (these apply to all child POMs, including
kernel and, in my case, adb) are not required by the main Axis runtime, only being used for
certain optional features, or are even questionable to include in the runtime at all (e.g.,
junit). For example, here's how my axis POM dependency looks like for a simple RPC client
code:

> 		</dependency>
> That's 16 (!) exclusions. Server code doesn't fare any better, with 14 exclusions (minus
neethi and fileupload). Something needs to be done about this (maybe move some of these from
axis2-parent down to individual POMs).
