ShrinkWrap Dependency Resolver updated formatting

Karel Piwko Master

Hello ShrinkWrap Resolver developers!


ShrinkWrap Dependency Resolver is now using JBoss Community formatter for all the code (SHRINKWRAP-324).

Please update your IDE configurations, maven-checkstyle plugin won't allow differently formatted code to pass.


You can get ShrinkWrap Dependency Resolver from https://github.com/shrinkwrap/resolver
