Subject Re: Depending on bouncycastle

Your suggestion got me started, but I veered off into linking the ant properties to the file
names.  That got me thinking; why do I even need the 
classifier?  Can't this just be done with properties alone?  So here's what I ended up with:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ivy-module version="2.0">
    <info organisation="bouncycastle" module="bouncycastle" revision="140" />
        <artifact name="bcprov-${base.jdk.version}" type="jar" ext="jar" conf="default"/>

        <filesystem name="ivycontrib">
            <artifact pattern="${ivycontrib.dir}/[module]/[revision]/[artifact]-[revision].[ext]"
            <artifact pattern="${ivycontrib.dir}/[module]/[revision]/[artifact]-${base.jdk.version}-[revision].[ext]"
            <ivy pattern="${ivycontrib.dir}/[module]/[revision]/ivy.xml" />

Which actually sort of works... except that both jars end up in the classpath.  This is strange.
 So my classpath ends up looking like:

Creating a different module doesn't quite solve the problem, because somehow I have to still
select the right one.  Unless, I suppose, I could put a 
variable such as ${ivy.jdk.version} into my project's ivy.xml.
