Andreas Andreou commented on SUREFIRE-615:
------------------------------------------

unfortunately, i still get the exception Benjamin reported in my testng tests - i can workaround
this by adding a dependency to junit in my project

> currently, the Surefire plugin uses resolveTransitively to obtain the Surefire provider
(junit, junit4, junit47, testng). Each of these has a compile time dependency on the library
itself to interact with their API.
> This results in downloading older versions as well as the newer one requested by the
project (TestNG 5.7, JUnit 4.0, JUnit 3.8.1). There are two possible solutions to this:
> - alter the resolveTranstively method to exclude the artifact that is already available
from the project
> - set the dependency to 'provided' in the providers POM
