[GRADLE-2338] all*.exclude rule being applied to external Groovy compiler classpath Created: 05/Jun/12  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

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

Type: Bug
Reporter: Kirk Rasmussen Assignee: Unassigned
Resolution: Won't Fix Votes: 1


I'm not 100% this is a bug but the following configuration setting results in an internal compilation error. My goal is to exclude commons-logging from the resulting WAR file because I'm using Spring with SLF4J using jcl-over-sl4j instead.

configurations {
    all*.exclude module: 'commons-logging'

Results in

Starting Gradle compiler daemon.
Gradle compiler daemon started.
Executing org.gradle.api.internal.tasks.compile.ApiGroovyCompiler@696ef992 in compiler daemon.
Exception executing org.gradle.api.internal.tasks.compile.ApiGroovyCompiler@696ef992 in compiler daemon: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: Lorg/apache/commons/logging/Log;.

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':compileGroovy'.
> Lorg/apache/commons/logging/Log;

compile.exclude module: 'commons-logging'

Doesn't work either
