        Key: MNG-77
    Summary: dependency-pom's parent not included in transitive dependency search
       Type: Bug

     Status: Open
   Priority: Major

 Original Estimate: 4 hours
 Time Spent: Unknown
  Remaining: 4 hours

    Project: m2
   Versions:
             1.0-alpha-1

Environment: all

Description:
UPDATE: related discussion of dependency classifiers is in MNG-78.



example:

I have a project for work that uses marmalade-core-1.0-alpha1.jar
This leads to transitive resolution of marmalade-core-1.0-alpha1.pom, 
which inherits from marmalade-parent-1.0-alpha1.pom.

marmalade-parent-1.0-alpha1.pom defines a dependency on xpp3-1.1.3.3.jar

When I build my work project, it DOES NOT resolve a transitive dependency on xpp3-1.1.3.3.jar.

======================

After looking at the source code for MavenMetadataSource, I see that the model's parent is
not considered during artifact resolution. This has a simple fix, in that the parent should
be checked for artifacts if it's not null. I have the new code implemented on my local working
dir.

HOWEVER, I cannot build maven with this fix. This is due to the fact that plexus-components-1.0.pom
defines a TEST-ONLY dependency on commons-jelly-tags-velocity-XXX.jar, which doesn't have
a pom associated with it. The quick fix is to satisfy all of these (I know there are more...I
just can't see them now) outstanding pom-not-found instances one by one. This is not desirable,
since it will lead to a bloated local repository full of other projects' test dependencies.

A longer-term fix is to determine how to classify dependencies as testing-only vs. runtime
vs. whatever...I know we've discussed this, but we should probably nail this down and get
it fixed correctly. I'll file a separate issue for the dependency classifier discussion, and
note its ID here.
