Grails dependency management

June 4, 2013
tags: ,

So for those of you out there who are in grails 2.0 or 2.1 and are not comfortable with the Ivy as build tool for their dependency management because your other projects are using maven, then the good news is Aether which is a library inuse in Maven 3.x – is integrated with grails 2.3 release.

What that implies is a clean transition from ivy to maven without having both co-existing. Also refresh policies can be controlled for your local repositories.

Using maven with grails 2.1 is not a very comfortable option if you try to get out of ivy-cache as all the commands like grails run-app cannot be directly used but have to used through the maven grails plugin. Also we found issues with eclipse not showing maven repository as part of classpath dependencies.
