Subject Re: Ivy File Publish - "Impossible to publish ivy file when conf is specified"
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2007 08:16:59 GMT

Indeed Ivy 1.4.1 is not able to publish the ivy file wen you select a conf,
because publishing the ivy file in such a case require to update the ivy
file to remove the configurations which are not published (since the
artifacts are not present, declaring the not published configurations would
imply an inconsistency in your repository. So for the moment your option is
either to generate your ivy file without the not published configurations by
hand, and ask ivy to publish the module based on this generated ivy file
(then you don't need to specify the conf), or use a trunk version of Ivy
since Maarten recently implemented this feature.

Another way would be to review your ivy file to see if you really need to
declare test artifacts. If you want to publish your module without these
artifacts, is there another time where you want to actually publish them. If
it isn't the case, you can simply remove them from your publications
section. Last you can even review your packaging and consider your
configurations as separate modules instead: a module test depending on your
module product. In Ivy a module is something that is supposed to follow the
same revision and publication cycle, that's why publishing only one
configuration wasn't supported so far.
