Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-3832) Allow wildcards in dependency exclusions
Date Fri, 13 Nov 2009 15:05:55 GMT


Wendy Smoak commented on MNG-3832:

I think you'll get more attention if you post to the dev list and describe what you've done.
 JIRA produces a LOT of mail and many people filter it out.  This is an issue with quite a
few votes and watchers, so hopefully you'll catch the interest of a committer who can help.

 This is especially useful when depending on an artifact with a classifier that may not have
the same dependencies as the main artifact.  Currently the only way to do this is by excluding
each dependency individually which requires significant effort and is prone to becoming out
of date.  The following syntax is one possibility.
> Exclude all transitive dependencies
> {code}
> <exclusion>
>   <groupId>*</groupId>
> </exclusion>
> {code}
> Exclude transitive dependencies with the groupId ""
> {code}
> <exclusion>
>   <groupId></groupId>
>   <artifactId>*</artifactId>
> </exclusion>
> {code}
