Subject RE: IVYDE - what are the alternatives?
Date Thu, 17 Jan 2008 21:00:09 GMT

I like the idea of having an xsl to do this (I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't think
of it before).   I'd be happy to help you work on it or test it.

I had written an ant task to do the same sort of thing, but XSL would be a lot simpler.

I understand everybody frustration here, and that's why I take time to
fix IvyDE.

Maybe to tackle users frustrations we can provide a simple XSL that
transform Ivy's resolve report into Eclipse classpath ?
We loose the easy of use of IvyDE, the cool editor, but at least it
will integrate Ivy into Eclipse early.

Maven is actually doing this kind of .classpath generation with "maven

Even more this XSL could be released with Ivy officially.
