Hi, I’m currently experimenting with using maven to manage my dependencies.
Installing the project works fine but I’m somewhat concerned whether or not my dependency graph shows the correct information.
I followed this guide:
“Configuring Apache Maven for use with GitHub Packages” (I can only add two links to this post; I’m sorry )
Most dependencies such as gson, jetty etc. I currently use are clickable in the dependencies section of the dependency tree and lead to the respective github repo. My own dependencies for which I have setup their own repositories and added packages for however only show up as: “groupId:artifactId” and are not clickable. I tried this with private as well as public dependcies. (But my dependents are private at least for now)
So far I’ve experimented with adding a tag and adding a tag to the dependencie’s pom.xml.
These two questions seem kind of related but due to a lack of information (or understanding on my side) I’m not sure whether or not the packages are hosted on github (doesn’t seem like they are):
I do not want to offend anyone but at least for me both of the answers don’t seem very helpful (and at least in the second post, it’s just a guess). But that might just be me not having enough understanding of the inner workins of maven and/ or package distribution.
The repo I want to use as a dependency is currently public, however this is just the case for testing purposes. Therefore I’d appreciate if one could provide a general answer independent from my repo as its going to be deleted.
I’d like to know whether linking is even possible and which parts of both pom.xml (dependent & dependency) I’d have to add to do this.
Thank you in advance. If you need additional information, feel free to ask for further information.
