android – How to exclude transitive dependencies of other subproject in multiproject builds?-ThrowExceptions

Exception or error:

In Build.scala I have a dependency between projects:

val coreLib = Projects.coreLib()
val consoleApp = Projects.consoleApp().dependsOn(coreLib)
val androidApp = Projects.androidProject().dependsOn(coreLib/*, exclusions = xpp */)

Core library project defines a library in its libraryDependencies (XPP parser), which I want to exclude in androidApp, since Android framework have its own XPP implementation out of the box.

How can I exclude XPP library from transitive dependencies of coreLib in androidApp project?

EDIT:

According to my research exclusion is possible ONLY to ModuleID which is used in conjunction with libraryDependency. Meanwhile dependsOn puts all transitive dependencies to classpath, there is no way in api to exclude some transitive dependencies of this project, you dependsOn

DETAILS:

I’m running sbt 0.13.5 currently.

libraryDependencies of commonLib as well as it various settings supplied in build.sbt so that this project could be reused as standalone, and because it feels right and natural way of supplying settings in sbt.

How to solve:

This appears to work for me:

val someApp = project.settings(
  libraryDependencies += "junit" % "junit" % "4.11"
)

val androidApp = project.dependsOn(someApp).settings(
  projectDependencies := {
    Seq(
      (projectID in someApp).value.exclude("junit", "junit")
    )
  }
)

What the projectDepenendencies is doing is what sbt, by default, attempts to do. It converts any inter-project dependencies into ModuleIDs which Ivy will use during resolution. Because the Project API has no way to specify excludes currently, we bypass this automatic layer and manually declare the Ivy dependency as well.

Result:

And the dependent project with junit/hamcrest excluded:
