Provide all Rapidclipse Dependencies as a bom
We want to use Rapidclipse for a single project in our multi-module maven infrastructure.
However there are already managed dependencies in the parent project's pom, which conflict with RC dependencies, e.g.:
To override those managed deps in the rapdiclipse project I had to manually override each one of them in the project's pom by copying the content of com.rapidclipse.rap-server-core:
It would be better if you could simply import all dependencies as a single bom (bill-of-materials)/pom, like Vaadin does.
I researched that topic a bit and as it turns out a BOM will not bring us advantages/helps solving that issue:
This is a maven standard and therefore not changeable.
So we have to live with the importing of the dependencies.
You can close the issue
I have never created BOM files. First tries to restructure the RAP project failed. Input is welcome.
Best would be if someone with experience creates the BOM and opens a pull request.
