My bug seems kinda related to #MPMD-273, but 3.10.0 works for me, not 3.11.0.
I'm trying to build a multi-module maven project with OpenJDK11 and Maven 3.5.4.
The project works fine with maven-pmd-plugin 3.10.0, but with 3.11.0, I get this error:
[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-pmd-plugin:3.11.0:pmd (pmd) on project parent: Execution pmd of goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-pmd-plugin:3.11.0:pmd failed: org.apache.maven.reporting.MavenReportException: org.eclipse.aether.resolution.DependencyResolutionException: Could not find artifact com.incepto.cloud:api-common:jar:0.0.1-SNAPSHOT in spring-repo (https://repo.spring.io/release) -> [Help 1]
pmd-plugin doesn't have a dependency on api-common, it's the first submodule maven tries to build. The problem doesn't occur if I skip pmd first and let maven install the submodules in the local repo, then re-run the build.
