Subject [jira] (MANTTASKS-234) artifact:dependencies does not download latest version SNAPSHOT dependency if already present locally
Date Mon, 03 Dec 2012 13:47:13 GMT

    [ https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MANTTASKS-234?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=314899#comment-314899
] 

Justin Rowe commented on MANTTASKS-234:
---------------------------------------

This is worse than I thought, because it actually downloads the first (i.e. oldest) version
of the snapshot, rather than the latest version. This is in contrast to mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-dependency-plugin:2.4:get
which correctly downloads the latest version; this is the behaviour that I would expect.

> We are using <artifact:dependencies> to trigger download of an artifact from a
remote repo to the local repo. When the dependency is a SNAPSHOT dependency, it only seems
to check that the dependency exists in the local repo, it does not check that there is a more
recent snapshot in the remote repo. So the snapshot artifact does not get updated with the
latest version. 
> My workaround is to call this artifact:dependencies, delete the artifact that is referred
to in the property that gets set by this task, and then call artifact:dependencies again to
ensure that we have the correct version.
