Related to GRADLE-1348 Transitive dependency not being pulle... Resolved


Given this build script:

repositories {
  mavenCentral name:'jboss', urls:"http://repository.jboss.org/nexus/content/groups/public-jboss/"

dependencies {
  compile group:'org.hibernate', name:'hibernate-core', version:'3.6.0.Final'

Here, mavenCentral is mistakenly used instead of mavenRepo. What then happens is that Ivy doesn't find hibernate-core POM/Jar in Central, but nevertheless downloads the Jar from JBoss repository. Because it doesn't have a POM, Ivy doesn't do any transitive dependency management (without warning the user). After fixing the problem by replacing mavenCentral with mavenRepo, one still has to clear out the Ivy cache in order to get transitive dependency management back.

With this behavior, the problem is difficult to track down. Maybe the resolution behavior could be improved, e.g. by looking for the POM (not just for the Jar) in both repositories. Or one could issue a warning that no transitive dependency management is possible for hibernate-core.
