Subject [jira] Commented: (MDEP-128) Support ability to specify multiple "includeScope" parameters
Date Thu, 18 Dec 2008 16:12:19 GMT


Matthew Lieder commented on MDEP-128:

While that makes sense, it is still counter-intuitive and I believe it would help a lot of
people if what you just said could be documented somewhere (ideally with some notes added
to the includeScope/excludeScope attributes on the goal).

> You can only configure the plugin with either one includeScope or one excludeScope. When
executing the plugin to copy dependencies with the following configuration:
> <plugin>
>    <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
>    <artifactId>maven-dependency-plugin</artifactId>
>    <executions>
>       <execution>
>          <id>copy-dependencies</id>
>          <phase>validate</phase>
>          <goals>
>             <goal>copy-dependencies</goal>
>          </goals>
>       </execution>
>    </executions>
>    <configuration>
>       <outputDirectory>/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/lib</outputDirectory> 
>       <overWriteReleases>false</overWriteReleases> 
>       <overWriteIfNewer>true</overWriteIfNewer> 
>       <overWriteSnapshots>true</overWriteSnapshots>
>       <excludeScope>provided</excludeScope>
>    </configuration>
> </plugin>
> It does exclude the provided scope, but it includes the test scope [easymock, dbunit,
 and junit appear in the output directory]. I tried to correct this problem by replacing the
excludeScope parameter with two includeScope parameters, one for compile one for runtime,
but only the first parameter was actually used. 
> I also tried to exclude test but got an error, something like, "Can't exclude tests as
that would exclude everything!". 
> The goal is to be able to recreate the default copy functionality that is accomplished
when executing a "mvn package" command, but be able to specify a maven-dependency-plugin configuration.
When specifying this configuration, it overrides the default settings throughout the entire
build life-cycle (as it should). But it is impossible to configure the plugin in the exact
same was as the default settings.
> This is needed to support copying dependencies into the WEB-INF/lib folder within Eclipse
workspaces, to support embedded application-server deployment.
