Subject Re: Listing all attached artifacts for a specific GAV
Date Fri, 01 Feb 2013 22:15:16 GMT
Thank you for your reply. Well there is some sort of data about it in a
local repository, not sure about what ends up in a remote one. I'm aware of
that the artifact should declare the dependencies, and that was one of the
ideas I had, though right now its pretty much impossible to do so due to
other circumstances. For now I just settled to declare the main artifacts
and look for them in a local repository. In our environment remote
deployments are not utilized, so I don't have to look for it elsewhere .
Pity though there is no "bulk" lookup feature, atleast for the same GAV.

On the other hand updating a pom file during a build with new dependencies
could set off the build entierly, wouldn't it?
