Subject Re: ivy.xml, strict location convention or configurable?
Date Thu, 12 Jun 2008 18:34:06 GMT

Thanks for the suggestion Jim. The only caveat it seems is that the
${ivy.dep.file} property must be set before calling <ivy:settings/>. I tried
setting the property after <ivy:settings/> and before <ivy:retrieve/> and
that didn't work.
