Subject [jira] Created: (MRM-255) Reports shouldn't show missing optional dependencies as an error.
Date Tue, 19 Dec 2006 23:02:40 GMT
Reports shouldn't show missing optional dependencies as an error.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MRM-255
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MRM-255
             Project: Archiva
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: reporting
    Affects Versions: 1.0-beta-1
            Reporter: Nicholas Daley
            Priority: Minor


The Reports page (under 'Manage' on the menu at the left of the screen) seems to show _any_
missing dependency using the error icon.
On my computer this results in lots of errors showing up, because optional dependencies have
not been downloaded.
I would suggest that the code generating the report should check if a dependency is optional,
and if so tag it as a warning or an info, and not as an error.

For example, ant:ant:1.6.2 has optional dependencies on xerces:xerces-impl:2.6.2 and xml-apis:xml-apis:2.6.2.
In ant's pom file, these dependencies are tagged using: "<optional>true</optional>"
