[GRADLE-1503] Eclipse classpath task doesn't respect transitive setting (regression) Created: 30/Apr/11  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

When generating an Eclipse classpath, Gradle will include transitive dependencies of a dependency in the classpath file, even when transitive is set to false on the dependency. This happens in the following case. Project 1 has dependency A and transitive is true. Project 2 has dependency A also, but transitive is set to false. Project 2 also has a dependency on Project 1. The Project 2 classpath will include all transitive dependencies of the dependency even though transitive was set to false.

This did not happen in Gradle 0.9.2 - the transitive dependencies were not included in Project 2's classpath file.

Attached is a sample that demonstrates the problem - run "eclipseClasspath" under Gradle 0.9.2 and then 1.0-milestone-3. Project 2's classpath will have the included transitive dependencies when run under 1.0-milestone-3, but not when run under 0.9.2.

I believe 0.9.2 is the correct behavior.
