Hi all,

We have a big problem with uploading task. Uploading fails with generic "Failed to validate POM for project" and no more information.
The build always fails when uploading the jar for war subprojects, both using the original publishing mechanism and the new maven-publish plugin.

We try with gradle version 1.5, 1.6 and 1.7, but the error is always the same. Here a [gist with the stack trace]([1]https://gist.github.com/davidecavestr...).

Follows an excerpt of our last attempt of configuring the upload for subprojects

subprojects {subprj->
configurations {
batchConfig jar
repositories {
mavenDeployer {
repository(url: "file:///tmp/m2/")
rootProject.uploadBatchConfig.dependsOn subprj.uploadBatchConfig

It could be our fault (the multiproject build is quite complex) but without further details on the validation failure cause, we have no chances to fix it.

Have you investigated the POM mentioned in the exception message?

Comment by Gradle Forums [ 30/Sep/13 ]

Yes I have. For me the POM appears correct.

I uploaded it in a [gist]([1]https://gist.github.com/andreaschiona...)

First thing I'd do is to verify this POM against its schema.

Comment by Gradle Forums [ 30/Sep/13 ]

I've already checked this thing and it successfully passes the validation

Looking at the code, I don't understand why the root cause is missing from the output. Can you show the stack trace when running with `--full-stacktrace`?

Comment by Gradle Forums [ 30/Sep/13 ]

[Here]([1]https://gist.github.com/andreaschiona...) you can found the stack trace when running with --full-stacktrace.

Unfortunally gradle don't show the "real" problem!

As you can see from the stack trace, Gradle is calling into Maven here, and apparently the only thing it gets back is this exception. I'll see if I can find something in the Maven sources.
