Subject [jira] [Commented] (BUILDR-274) Support dependency version ranges for transitive dependencies
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2016 14:43:59 GMT


Michael Guymon commented on BUILDR-274:

Author of LockJar - Sorry, I am a bit late to the party here. The Maven dependencies resolver
is a bit of a beast, it requires mounds of Jars to function. Packaging these along with Buildr
would increase the size dramatically. I would argue that having a slim and trim Buildr and
being able to garnish with additional features as needed is a good thing.

> A version range is e.g. used by ehcache-web ([2]), so that when I use

> buildr fails with this error:
>   Failed to download net.sf.ehcache:ehcache:pom:[1.6.0-beta4,], tried the following repositories...
> It would be great to have support for version ranges, otherwise some libs cannot be used
with transitive().
