I define ivy resolvers directly still since the gradle ivy DSL does not yet have the changing* properties for ivy resolvers. It seems that with gradle-1.0-milestone-8 gradle has stopped honoring the changingPattern though. For instance, if I define a local filesystem resolver like so:

add(new org.apache.ivy.plugins.resolver.FileSystemResolver()) {
name = 'localRepository'
changingPattern = '.*-SNAPSHOT'
checksums = "sha1,md5"
addArtifactPattern "${System.properties['user.home']}/.ivy2/local-repo/$artifactPattern"
addIvyPattern "${System.properties['user.home']}/.ivy2/local-repo/$ivyPattern"

even if I set

{ resolutionStrategy.cacheChangingModulesFor 0, 'minutes' }

Gradle will never download a new jar with a -SNAPSHOT version. I have verified that if I use dynamic versions (i.e. latest.integration) and set the resolution strategy for dynamic versions it does work.

Is there some way to communicate to gradle that it should honor the changing pattern of the ivy resolvers with the new resolution code?

Hi Sean,

Can you confirm that this worked for `1.0-milestone-7`?

Comment by Gradle Forums [ 27/Feb/12 ]

I know it is working with milestone-6 and before, I will try it with milestone-7 and report back.

Comment by Gradle Forums [ 27/Feb/12 ]

I have the same problem with milestone-7. It seems to handle dynamic versions just fine, but not changingVersions.

Thanks for taking the time to find that out. That will make it easier to track down.

A sample test case to verify whether changing module dependencies are refreshed by Gradle when there are new versions on the repository.

  • Gradle 1.0-m8
  • Ivy http repository using Maven2 layout (see remoteRepo configuration in gradleUserHome/init.gradle)

The test case contains:

  • A org.foo:helloplugin module using a changing version (1.0-m1-SNAPSHOT but can be any)
  • A test module that defines a buildscript dependency to the helloplugin setting changing=true
  • A build script that builds and uploads the helloplugin, then runs the test module - this is done 3 times, each time checking whether the test module uses latest helloplugin

Please let me know if there are any misconfigurations or anything that needs to be changed, I also tried setting

resolutionStrategy {
    cacheChangingModulesFor 0, 'seconds'

for the test module's buildscript configuration but it did not seem to help.
