Subject [jira] (MNG-3092) Version ranges with non-snapshot bounds can contain snapshot versions
Date Fri, 29 Mar 2013 17:46:54 GMT


Scott Sosna commented on MNG-3092:

Have we narrowed it down to just these two approaches?  And does it solve all the issues in
this thread?  I see some discussions about versions 4.0-alpha-1 and should it behave like
4.0-SNAPSHOT, I'm concerned we've addressed the happy-path (not that there's anything happy
here) and want to make sure everything is addressed (even the statement is "that's silly").

Also, what are the performance impacts on either of these approaches?  For my projects, Maven3
is substantially slower in resolving versions, making things like the Eclipse m2e plugin borderline
useless.  Dependencies need to be resolved as quickly as in Maven2.

If these are the two approaches, who approaches the Maven committers or whomever to get signoff
on an approach and get it commited to the branch?

unless it is included as an explicit boundary."

> The following is equates to true:
> VersionRange.createFromVersionSpec( "[1.0,1.1]" ).containsVersion( new DefaultArtifactVersion(
"1.1-SNAPSHOT" ) )
> The attached patch only allows snapshot versions to be contained in a range if they are
equal to one of the boundaries.  Note that this is a strict equality, so [1.0,1.2-SNAPSHOT]
will not contain 1.1-SNAPSHOT.
