Gradle support in Wildfly Swarm


(Tasos Zervos) #1

Hi,

The Wildfly Swarm team in their latest release notes have this message:

Gradle. Sigh.
We still include the Gradle plugin, but we disavow any knowledge about it or expectation that it works. We’ve removed the Gradle examples from the active build of our examples repository. We have found that Gradle does not consistently handle our tree of parent POMs and importation of BOMs for version management. We may completely remove Gradle support in a future version, unless some Gradle-loving community member wants to volunteer to knock it into shape. The core team is simply lacking the resources to improve and maintain it.

Is this true: “Gradle does not consistently handle our tree of parent POMs and importation of BOMs for version management.”?

Wildfly Swarm looks like a very interesting/promising project, but this latest direction is a show stopper for me…
Is there any possibility for you to give the Swarm team some hints/help, please?

Thank you,
Tasos
