How to exclude zip only from archives for Maven repo upload?

Hi all,

I’ve inherited a multi-project build using application plugin. I’ve added maven plugin to upload artifacts to a repo. I want to upload the distTar artifacts only. I want the distZip artifacts to be excluded from the upload. Or ideally not generated at all…

The build runs distZip and distTar. When I exclude distZip (with -x distZip or distZip.enabled = false) the uploadArchives task fails with the error below.

Should skipping distZip be enough?

I also tried adding an exclude '**/*.zip' to the distributions { main{ contents {} } } config to no avail. Also tried this - https://gist.github.com/ncarroll/8327680

:subproj1:distTar (Thread[Daemon worker Thread 4,5,main]) started.

$ gradle -version

Many thanks,

Something like this should do:

configurations.archives.with {
    artifacts.remove artifacts.find { it.archiveTask.is distZip }
}

Many thanks. That worked.

I naively hoped disabling the distZip task would do this :slight_smile: but wrenching the zip artifacts out of the archives collection by brute force as part of the uploadArchives configuration setup works fine.

Perhaps the new maven-publish plugin that currently incubating may just-work™ in this manner.

Hi,

it seems this solution is not working with Gradle 5 any more. I get the following error:

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':publishMavenJavaPublicationToMavenLocal'.
> Failed to publish publication 'mavenJava' to repository 'mavenLocal'
   > Invalid publication 'mavenJava': artifact file does not exist: 'blablalba.zip'

Do you know an alternate solution?

Thanks
Andy
