How to Control Maven Dependency Order in Different Modules

I have a program where I have the same java method at two  different locations. I have a java class, e.g., public class foo located "jiatfw-core "or Module B, I also have this same class (foo) located in module "core" or Module C. I am running my main class from a module called "jiatfw-bl" or Module A.

My problem is that my Module A is using the code in Module C or "core" where the class was originally defined, but I want it to use the class located in Model B or "jiatfw-core" which overrides the methods used in the base core.

Below is a cutout of my POM file located in module A or "jiatfw-bl".

I believe that which ever dependency is defined first is used first. Identical to defining different classes in a java classPath statement.

Can someone suggest to me what I might be doing wrong. Attached is a graph showing the relationship between modules.

    <parent>
        <artifactId>jiatfw-parent</artifactId>
        <groupId>com.inc.jiatfw</groupId>
        <version>1-SNAPSHOT</version>
    </parent>

    <artifactId>jiatfw-bl</artifactId>
    <name>JIATFW BL</name>

    <dependencies>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>com.inc.jiatfw</groupId>
            <artifactId>jiatfw-core</artifactId>
            <version>1-SNAPSHOT</version>
        </dependency>
        <dependency>
            <groupId>com.inc.components.core</groupId>
            <artifactId>core</artifactId>
        </dependency>

And both classes foo have the same fully qqualifies name with packages, etc.
So you have two copies of the same package jiatfw-core and the same pacjkage in core ?

First, to answer your question for_yan. Yes, everthing is the same as far as package name and class/method name. I think the method signatures are different.

I will check out the link you specified.


Thankyou,
Cedarville
