Subject [jira] [Commented] (FELIX-2016) Embed-Transitive not working reliably

Alexander Klimetschek commented on FELIX-2016:
----------------------------------------------

I agree, that behavior is completely different from what you expect when seeing it and reading
the documentation.

I think "Embed-Transitive" can be dropped (it seems quite useless to me, since you  and replaced
by adding a directive on items in the Embed-Dependency list. Because in many cases you embed
multiple libraries, but don't want transitive embeds for all of them:

<Embed-Dependency>
    libraryA;transitive=true,
    libraryB
</Embed-Dependency>

And then maybe also allow exclusions on the individual transitive dependency "trees":

<Embed-Dependency>
    libraryA;transitive=true;exclude=foo;exclude=bar,
    libraryB
</Embed-Dependency>

This is more intuitive than the wildcard + scope approach, which is the "simplest" way to
get things running. From experience, it is always a huge lot of work and fiddling when embedding
libraries.

> <Embed-Transitive>true</Embed-Transitive> only includes the transitive dependencies
when Embed-Dependency contains a wildcard pattern (i.e. <Embed-Dependency>*</Embed-Dependency>).
Otherwise only the direct dependencies of the ones specified in the Embed-Dependency tag are
included.
