Description wojtekkk87 2014-02-01 14:08:59 UTC
I used to create multiple projects to separate some tires while I'm developing some Java applications. So for example I have two projects:
- MongoDataStore - which imports mongo-java-driver-2.11.3.jar to work properly.
- UI

Right now to have properly working app I have to import mongo-java-driver-2.11.3.jar into UI project too... And when it's geting more complicated - I mean more projects referencing each other the Main project has to import all jar which are imported by all referenced projects... Which makes no sense in my opinion...

The Ant project does not support transitive dependencies, see issue #47507.
