Subject [jira] Created: (MDEP-272) purge-local-repository does nothing if certain dependencies are included
Date Wed, 30 Jun 2010 08:31:32 GMT
purge-local-repository does nothing if certain dependencies are included

                 Key: MDEP-272
             Project: Maven 2.x Dependency Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: purge-local-repository
    Affects Versions: 2.0
            Reporter: Michele Lorenzini
            Assignee: Brian Fox
         Attachments: pom.xml

I've noticed that the {{purge-local-repository}} goal does nothing if certain dependencies
are present in the dependency tree of the project.
After some attempts I've found some of the dependencies that can show problem.
See attached {{pom.xml}}: if I run {{mvn validate}} as is, maven purges the local repository
and the log4j jar is downloaded from the remote repository.

Removing the comment around the jasperreports dependency and re-running {{mvn validate}} gives
the following result:
[INFO] [dependency:purge-local-repository {execution: default}]
[INFO] Nothing to do for project: test-issue:test-issue:pom:

So it seems that something goes wrong while resolving the dependencies for the project if
the jasperreports jar is included, resulting in the {{purge-local-repository}} to skip the
clean of the local repository.
I dont know if this happens only with jasperreports dependency or if it is something more
