Subject [jira] Created: (MDEP-62) Ability to disallow groups of deps
Date Wed, 07 Feb 2007 20:20:44 GMT
Ability to disallow groups of deps

                 Key: MDEP-62
             Project: Maven 2.x Dependency Plugin
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: David Blevins
         Assigned To: Brian Fox

There's a related issue MNG-2796 ( involving some
issue with using one pom ("server" parent pom) to depend on another pom ("container" parent
pom).  The desired effect is that any children modules of the container parent pom cannot
depend on any children modules of the server parent pom.  Having the server parent pom depend
on the container parent pom is one way to ensure this cannot happen, but maybe considered
a hack -- and I suppose it is when you consider that this only works if you control the poms
of the deps that are "off limits".

Brett has suggested adding explicit support for this so that groups of deps or individual
deps could be marked as disallowed.  That feature would definitely work as an alternate ensuring
that nothing in the container group depends on anything in the server group.
