Subject RE: how to import artifacts
Date Fri, 19 Dec 2008 04:26:53 GMT
I use this script:


if ($1 == "") then
    echo "Usage: installjar <org> <module> <revision> <path-to-file>"
    /usr/local/ant/bin/ant -Dorg="$1" -Dmodule="$2" -Drev="$3" -Dinstall.path="$4" $5 $6 $7
$8 $9

With the following build target:

  <target name="installjar"
          description="--> install jar to masrep">
    <ivy:install settingsRef="masergy.settings" organisation="${org}" module="${module}"
revision="${rev}" type="jar" from="${localjar.resolver}" to="${to.resolver}" />

Where my defines these variables:


And my ivysettings.xml includes:
    <filesystem name="localjars">
      <artifact pattern="${install.path}/[artifact]-[revision].[ext]" />
      <artifact pattern="${install.path}/[artifact].[ext]" />

This script allows me to specify a jar on the local filesystem by its name and the directory
in which it resides (install.path), add the org, and rev metadata, and publish it to one of
my resolvers (I use SFTP with a keyfile to push files up to our webserver; you may use a filesystem
resolver or webdav as a destination).

I also have a bigger hack of a perl script which attempts to read a directory of jars and
guess the org, modul, and rev (validating against maven2), or prompt the user when it's unclear.

Subject: how to import artifacts

I'd like to integrate ivy into our development process.  In order to do so,
I would need to import all the existing dependencies (typically jars) that
our project currently uses, into a shared repository.  I couldn't find this
anywhere in the documentation, so. what is the magical incantation to add a
single artifact into the repository?  I would expect there to be a simple
command-line invocation where you pass a few parameters (org, module,
version, filename), and the file is added to the repository.


This seems to me a fundamental requirement to set up a repository, so I'm
rather surprised that it's not documented in some obvious place, and there's
no tutorial that explains it.  I saw a tutorial that shows how to copy
artifacts from one repository to another, but that's worthless if what you
have doesn't live in any repository yet.


Thanks in advance,
