Subject [jira] [Closed] (MJAVADOC-436) New flag for detecting links in transitive dependencies
Date Sat, 01 Dec 2018 16:12:00 GMT


Robert Scholte closed MJAVADOC-436.
    Resolution: Won't Fix
      Assignee: Robert Scholte

All external classes you use should be part of a direct dependency, never rely on transitive
dependencies. Suppose one of your dependencies decides to drop that certain library, then
your code won't work anymore.

Use {{dependency:analyze}} to discover if you have have used but undeclared dependencies,
in other words if your code is using classes from transitive dependencies.

>            Priority: Major
>         Attachments: MJAVADOC-436.patch
> Currently, 
> detectLinks checks only direct project dependencies. It would be nice to have a way to
search for links also in transitive dependencies. 
> I suggest adding detectLinksInTransitiveDependencies flag, which would enable this behaviour.
> Proposed patch included.
