I'm using the groovy and war plugins. However, I'm only using Groovy for testing, and don't want the Groovy dependencies to appear in my war file.

My dependencies include:
groovy group: 'org.codehaus.groovy', name: 'groovy', version: '1.6.5'

and my war project contains:

war {

This excludes the groovy jar from the war WEB-INF/lib folder of the war file, but not the transitive dependencies (eg. the war file contains WEB-INF/lib/jline-0.9.94.jar). I've found a couple of workarounds. However I think that libExcludeDependencies should exclude transitive dependencies by default.
