Description of problem:
Tattletale reports a circular dependency at ant-1.8.1.jar and ant-nodeps-1.8.1.jar. See the tattletale report here:
From the ant 1.8.2 release:
* Removed ant-nodeps.jar; it is now merged into ant.jar.
Fixed the ant circular dependency by upgrading to ant 1.8.2 (because ant's 1.8.1 maven artifacts where circular by design, there's nothing we could do there on our end):
The ehcache/hibernate circular dependency is currently to risky to fix by upgrading the hibernate version. Master might already be on a newer hibernate version which might fix that.
Please verify the issue on 5.3 ER4.
Verified. The circular dependency is gone according to JBoss Tattletale.
