Subject [jira] Commented: (MASSEMBLY-324) DependencySet scope runtime includes jars that are scope provided
Date Mon, 05 May 2008 15:15:22 GMT


Stephane Gamble commented on MASSEMBLY-324:


I was experiencing the same issue.

One of my project's dependencies had its scope set to "provided" in the pom file but was taken
by the assembly despite the runtime scope parameter. I changed the output name mapping so
that the scope would be part of the dependency file name and it turned out to be considered
as a "compile" dependency.

In fact it was just brought as a transitive dependency with a compile scope by another direct
The funny thing is that when I ran the dependency:tree task, I found out that this artifact
appeared only once in the dependency tree, with the following information :
+- groupId:artifactId:jar:version:provided (scope not updated to compile)
It was not mentionned as part of the dependencies of the artifact bringing it with the compile

I am not too sure about this "scope not updated to compile" thing.
The phenomena is the same with 2.2-beta-1 but not with 2.1. With 2.1, this dependency was
actually considered provided and therefore skipped in the assembly. Maybe you were used to
2.1's behaviour ? The backward compatibility may be missing on this specific point ?

You may have done this check already, but make sure there is not another dependency messing
up with a compile or runtime scope. Check the dependencies scope directly in the pom files
of your local repository as the dependency:tree task may not be 100% reliable for the witch

In my case, the provided dependencies are correctly excluded with the <scope>runtime</scope>
parameter (using assembly:2.2-beta-2, maven-2.0.8 & Windows XP).

Good luck !

> Yet I still find the servlet-api-2.5.jar in my WAR.  SInce the servlet-api is scope provided,
it should be provided by the container and not included in the WAR.
