Subject RE: What is the first entry point to the Ivy lifecycle?
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2008 18:54:36 GMT
2 quick and helpful responses, thanks, but I need just a little further

Maybe this will explain my confusion:

Step 1:  Resolve, to get the dependencies of foo.jar
Step 2:  Build foo.jar
Step 3:  ??????  What happens here?  Must I perform yet another resolve
to add foo.jar to the cache?  
Step 4:  Publish foo.jar

To properly build an ivy module, you must first resolve/retrieve its
dependencies, then compile it against those dependencies, then you can
publish it.  You can call retrieve without doing a resolve, and the
resolve will be called for you.  Yes, you are right, the resolve is what
puts dependencies into the cache.

Subject: What is the first entry point to the Ivy lifecycle?

Hi all,

I am trying to publish a jar to my repository for the very first time.
I am getting errors indicating that the module is not in my cache (which
it is not, because it is a brand new jar that never existed before

When I look at the Ivy lifecycle diagram, it seems cyclic with no entry
points other than the public repository:

I can see how artifacts transition between states, but not how it enters
the cache for the first time.

I suspect maybe it is <ivy:resolve>, but the document does not say this.
It only says that resolve retrieves dependencies.

What I tried is a <ivy:publish> task which is failing with this error.

java.lang.IllegalStateException: ivy file not found in cache for
ccrt#hello-A;1.0: please resolve dependencies before delivering

>From this message, it seems that <publish> is trying to read some
information from the cache.  As I mentioned before, I don't see how the
artifact is populated into the cache for the first time.

Help appreciated, this is very frustrating.
