Subject [jira] Commented: (MDEP-272) purge-local-repository does nothing if certain dependencies are included
Date Tue, 15 Feb 2011 16:59:23 GMT


Paul Mackinlay commented on MDEP-272:

This does not look like it is specific to jasperreports.jar, I have other dependencies and
am experiencing the same issue.

> 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:
> {code}
> [INFO] [dependency:purge-local-repository {execution: default}]
> [INFO] Nothing to do for project: test-issue:test-issue:pom:
> {code}
> 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 general.
