Subject RE: Options for using Ivy to maintain Eclipse classpath
Date Fri, 08 Feb 2008 17:36:04 GMT

IvyDE is the most elegant solution. However, it is quite flaky - i.e.
not as polished as the Maven 2 classpath container.

If you can use the last stable version (1.4x) of IvyDE, you'll probably
be ok. Even that version is flaky and can routinely corrupt your
classpath (fixable by right-clicking on the IvyDE classpath item node
and selecting "Refresh") or cause Eclipse to hang (fixable by killing
Eclipse, deleting the IvyDE plugin, restarting Eclipse, turning
auto-compile off and re-installing the IvyDE plugin).

If you want smooth integration, an Ant task with XSL is currently the
most reliable way to generate Eclipse classpaths. This strategy will
necessarily involve and extra setup step in your project.

In the end, what works best for you is what is recommended.

Subject: Options for using Ivy to maintain Eclipse classpath

Hi all,


I have seen a couple of different options out there for using Ivy to
maintain an Eclipse classpath - IvyDE, eclim, etc.   What is the most
current and accepted technique for doing this?
