Subject [jira] [Commented] (BIGTOP-98) Ability to force ivy/maven version inter-dependency needs to be implemented
Date Fri, 16 Sep 2011 19:32:09 GMT


Bruno Mahé commented on BIGTOP-98:

{quote}Making sure that we can make freshly built bits available to downstream parts of the
build as dependencies {quote}

I am not sure to follow. It's very likely an upstream project has already its artifacts in
a maven repository. So they will already be available downstream. If a project does not publish
artifacts for maven, maybe we should focus on helping projects do that

{quote}Making sure that we can override build dependencies of the downstream parts of the
build to pick up versions that we specify
 I'm about to investigate how easy/difficult it'll be to solve both of them. Feel free to
chime in. {quote}

How far can we go? A patch would be perfect so we can separate the build responsibility from
the version specification.

As for the political side, I don't disagree with you, but this is still something to clear

> We need to have a mechanism in place to be able to force compile-time inter-dependencies
to be within stack of Bigtop components. Currently we rely on whatever projects specify at
release time. This leads to an unfortunate side effect of components compiling against one
version of artifacts and deploying against a different one.
