The alfresco-platform-distribution published to artifacts.alfresco.com for the 201612 GA release (5.2.d) references an incorrect version of the Share artifacts (e.g. org.alfresco:share and org.alfresco:web-framework-commons). This is a result of the decoupling between Repository and Share, since 201612 GA consists of 5.2.d Platform and 5.2.c Share, while the referenced version for Share artifacts is 5.2.d which does not exist
This problem can be observed with a project that includes the alfresco-platform-distribution POM for standard dependencies and includes the org.alfresco:share:classes:jar dependency. It will fail to resolve that artifact.
