I came across this GAV.


The group id is obviously edu.wpi.first.wpilib.networktables.java and the artifact id NetworkTables. That's as much as i follow.

The Maven repo this code publishes to is here.  It contains these files:
  • NetworkTables-3.1.5-20170105171843-1-g3e2631f-arm.jar
  • NetworkTables-3.1.5-20170105171843-1-g3e2631f-desktop.jar
  • NetworkTables-3.1.5-20170105171843-1-g3e2631f-sources.jar


  • And running a build with this dependency downloaded:
    http://first.wpi.edu/FRC/roborio/maven/development/edu/wpi/first/wpilib/networktables/java/NetworkTables/3.1.5-20170105171843-1-g3e2631f/NetworkTables-3.1.5-20170105171843-1-g3e2631f-desktop.jar

    Which implies that + is the latest version number and desktop is the classifier. But I've never seen a GAV like this before so not sure.

    The answer is that + is Gradle syntax for a dynamic module. Which is like "LATEST" in Maven.
