Subject Re: [ANNOUNCE] Apache Groovy 2.5.0-rc-1 released
Date Mon, 09 Apr 2018 21:15:49 GMT

I'm having a go at giving this release a spin by updating Geb's build to
use it but unfortunately I'm not having any luck with trying to use the
groovy-all artifact. I understand from the earlier thread about updates to
the build on the dev list that the jar for that artifact is not published
and it's supposed to just be a dependency only aritfact which will be
useful for resolving all of Groovy's modules.

To quote you:

> The idea (once finished) is that you can still depend on a groovy-all dependency
via Maven or Gradle and you'll automatically get the multiple required
equivalent jars of the current single groovy-all jar.

Unfortunately this is not the case. Given a simple build like:

plugins {
id 'groovy'

repositories {

dependencies {
compile 'org.codehaus.groovy:groovy-all:2.5.0-rc-1'

and an empty Groovy class in the main source set when running `gradle
build` I'm getting:

Could not resolve all dependencies for configuration ':compileClasspath'.
> Could not find groovy-all.jar (org.codehaus.groovy:groovy-all:2.5.0-rc-1).
  Searched in the following locations:

I tried changing the dependency to '
org.codehaus.groovy:groovy-all:2.5.0-rc-1@pom' but while in that case
dependency resolution phase succeeds the build itself then fails with:

Cannot infer Groovy class path because no Groovy Jar was found on class
path: configuration ':compileClasspath'

I do not see any of the modules apart from groovy-all itself being added to
the configuration when running `gradle dependencies --configuration

compile - Dependencies for source set 'main'.
\--- org.codehaus.groovy:groovy-all:2.5.0-rc-1

Am I doing something wrong or is the way forward not using groovy-all
anymore and explicitly depending on only the used modules?
