Did you follow the dual resolver tutorial
( ? It should
give you a good idea of how to use your repository for ivy files and
another for artifacts.

Ivy is able to use maven2 repositories, but it still suffer from some
pom incompatibilities. The easiest is to use <ibilio
m2compatible="true"/> as your resolver, and it should be enough.

Ivy can use m2 poms, even if it's not always the best thing to do,
since many poms are wrong or give you too much dependencies. But you
can work with ivy files for some projects and poms for others, this
works pretty well. The most difficult is if the metadata you use do
not have the same naming conventions (org.apache vs apache for
instance). In this case you can use Ivy namespaces to deal with that
issue (there's a good tutorial for that).
