[GRADLE-3485] Maven POM resolution leads to StackOverflowError if parent GAVs reference resolved POM GAVs Created: 16/Jun/16  Updated: 04/Jan/17  Resolved: 04/Jan/17

Known Issue Of:


A resolved pom.xml with the following coordinates does not resolve properly. The parent section of the POM references a POM with the same coordinates. Gradle runs into a java.lang.StackOverflowError.



Optimally, Gradle would detect this infinite loop and implement a circuit breaker pattern or thrown an appropriate exception. The implementation should be orientate itself along Maven's behavior.

A test case can be found in the Gradle core codebase.
