Subject Using a graph to resolve dependencies
Date Tue, 06 Nov 2007 11:19:44 GMT
Mark, Ralph,

You'll probably be interested in the artifact graph code that went in  
as the conflict resolution and dependency management are natural fall  
outs of the work. The old code works perfectly fine and I just have to  
obfuscate a couple JARs and I can publish a little dependency viewer  
that Oleg whipped off with a donated version of yFiles. Once we put  
that up then I think we can visually see the behavior of the mechanism  
and work through the flaws by seeing them. We can make some pictures  
and then throw out the scenarios for discussion. After the tree is  
produced, creating a graph with conflict resolution techniques is  
pretty straight forward but deciding how the POM should change to have  
the various conflict resolvers activated will require a bit of dialog  
I imagine.
