[GRADLE-1673] Cannot generate <exclusions> element in Maven POM Created: 13/Jul/11  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Status: Resolved
Project: Gradle
Affects Version/s: 1.0-milestone-3
Fix Version/s: None

Type: New Feature

I would like to add exclusions to a dependency in a specific pom. In earlier versions of gradle I was able to define these exclusions in a programmatic way:

  mavenDependency.addExclusion(new org.apache.maven.model.Exclusion(
                groupId: '*',
                artifactId: '*'

With 1.0-milestone-3 I get a classcast exception.

Adding exclusions in a pom in a builder style would be great. An example syntax:

apply plugin: "maven"
install {
  repositories.mavenInstaller {
    pom {
      dependencies.each{ dep ->
          dep.exclusions << [artifactId:'*', groupId:'*']    

This results in a dependency definition in our pom that has exclusion defined for the dependency:

apply plugin: "maven"

install {
  repositories.mavenInstaller {
    pom {
      packaging = "pom" // has no effect

      project {
        packaging "pom" // has no effect
