Gradle Goodness: Exclude Transitive Dependency from All Configurations

Are you joining the containers revolution? Start leveraging container management using Platform9's ultimate guide to Kubernetes deployment.

We can exclude transitive dependencies easily from specific configurations. To exclude them from all configurations we can use Groovy's spread-dot operator and invoke the exclude() method on each configuration. We can only define the group, module or both as arguments for the exclude() method.

The following part of a build file shows how we can exclude a dependency from all configurations:

configurations {
    all*.exclude group: 'xml-apis', module: 'xmlParserAPIs'

// Equivalent to:
configurations {
    all.collect { configuration ->
        configuration.exclude group: 'xml-apis', module: 'xmlParserAPIs'
