[GRADLE-3309] Excessive downloads during resolution Created: 23/Jun/15 Updated: 10/Feb/17 Resolved: 10/Feb/17
|Reporter:||Mark Vieira (Inactive)||Assignee:||Unassigned|
The following script unnecessarily results in Gradle downloading irrelevant snapshot version metadata when resolving the latest version. This appears to be triggered only when the jcenter() repository is included, as if excluded the expected behavior is exhibited. I cannot find any reason in the repository metadata that triggers this bug.
This is a minimalistic snippet from the gradle-versions-plugin, which uses the resolution results to report potential version upgrades. The Gradle cache effectively makes this a one time cost, but the excessive downloads and the sequential http requests (GRADLE-25822) results in a poor initial experience.
Running gradle resolve with JCenter takes 2m9s and without 6s.
