Subject [jira] Updated: (GERONIMO-4013) Make our dependency usage the same as maven dependency usage via car-maven-plugin
Date Wed, 14 May 2008 00:35:55 GMT


David Jencks updated GERONIMO-4013:

    Attachment: GERONIMO-4013.diff

This patch reverses the changes from GERONIMO-4012 which prevent working on this issue, changes
the car-maven-plugin, uses the new flag in the gshell-* configs, and fixes things up so the
build works for me.  I think the gshell-* plugins are not getting used in this build but we
can look at the dependencies added to the plans/geronimo-plugin.xml and see if those are reasonable.

> Right now the car-maven-plugin ignores maven transitive dependencies.  One reason for
this is that our build is not using our plugins as the "classloader source" of the maven dependencies
that are in the plugin poms.  If we restructured our build so that the pom dependency graph
matched the geronimo classloader graph then perhaps we could let the car-maven-plugin follow
transitive dependencies, thus making our view of dependencies pretty much the same as maven's.
> This may show up many other problems, such as too many badly scoped dependencies in all
sorts of projects we use.
> One first step is to try out the car-maven-plugin with a flag for following transitive
dependencies.  As long as it is false we ought to get pretty much the previous behavior.
> A first use could be for the new gshell plugins so they don't have to restate all the
transitive dependencies.  This may show up scope problems as well.
