Subject [jira] (MNG-5761) <dependencyManagement> picks wrong version for transitive dependencies
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2015 19:26:18 GMT
Jeff Schnitzer created MNG-5761:

             Summary: <dependencyManagement> picks wrong version for transitive dependencies
                 Key: MNG-5761
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Dependencies
    Affects Versions: 3.2.5
            Reporter: Jeff Schnitzer

A detailed description of the issue is here:

The short of it is that maven appears to be using the wrong <dependencyManagement> version
in a transitive dependency.  There are two relevant <dependencyManagement> sections
in the build, one pulled in by guice and one pulled in by gwizard-parent. These are the dependency
paths from the top:

gwizard-example -> gwizard-config -> gwizard-parent
gwizard-example -> gwizard-config -> guice -> guice-parent

gwizard-parent's dependencyManagement specifies guice 18
guice-parent's dependencyManagement specifies guice 16

Guice 16 is winning. This seems highly undesirable, and in fact it breaks our build. I would
expect that in a version # fight, "closest to the top" should win.
