[GRADLE-3342] Non-versioned maven dependencies causing continuous remote resolution. Created: 24/Sep/15  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Status: Resolved
Project: Gradle
Affects Version/s: 2.5
Fix Version/s: None

Type: Bug
Reporter: Adrian Kelly (Inactive) Assignee: Unassigned
Resolution: Won't Fix Votes: 0


A dependency defined without a version number causes gradle to always attempt remote resolution (at least for maven repos) to find that dependency even though it will never find it. e.g.

dependencies {
    compile 'org.apache.httpcomponents:httpclient'

It never finds the dependency because the URL to the remote repo is incorrect or perhaps there is no correct remote maven repo url for non-versioned artifacts. e.g.

_Failed to get resource: GET. [HTTP HTTP/1.1 404 ….httpcomponents/httpclient//httpclient-.pom]

As announced on the Gradle blog we are planning to completely migrate issues from JIRA to GitHub.

We intend to prioritize issues that are actionable and impactful while working more closely with the community. Many of our JIRA issues are inactionable or irrelevant. We would like to request your help to ensure we can appropriately prioritize JIRA issues you’ve contributed to.

Please confirm that you still advocate for your JIRA issue before December 10th, 2016 by:

  • Checking that your issues contain requisite context, impact, behaviors, and examples as described in our published guidelines.
  • Leave a comment on the JIRA issue or open a new GitHub issue confirming that the above is complete.

We look forward to collaborating with you more closely on GitHub. Thank you for your contribution to Gradle!
