Project dependencies transitivity


(Wujek Srujek) #1

Hi. I have a following project structure: A, B requires A to compile, and C requires B to compile. C is a webapp, where B is defined as a compile dependency. To my surprise, A is not on the runtime classpath for some reason. Why is that? I need to explicitly add a runtime dependency on on A. Are such dependencies not transitive? I.e., as C compile-depend on B, A must also be among its dependencies, if not compile, then runtime. What is strange, project A and all it depends on is on the testRuntime classpath, for example.

How exactly did you verify that A is not on C’s runtime class path? I’d be surprised if it wasn’t.

I issue gradle dependencies in the web project. Here is my output (for runtime :

Please notice that in testRuntime, social:wiring-guice has a (transitive) dependency on social:core-neo4j, wheres in runtime it doesn’t. This is not 100% reproducible, though. Sometimes the module ist there. Something very strange is going on with my build right now…

This seems to have something to do with the fact that I was doing stuff on the command line, but IDEA, with the same project open, was running as well. Now that I stopped IDEA, the output is as expected (i.e., project A is transitively on the runtime classpath) - I guess when I cleand on the cp, IDEA kicked in and tried to build, and somehow prevented subsequent command line calls from working properly…
