Subject Re: IvyDE - Is it possible to have it download sources & javadocs?
Date Tue, 03 Mar 2009 23:06:23 GMT
Hi Kent,

I got this working by adding the following configurations

        <conf name="sources"/>
        <conf name="javadoc"/>

Then added configuration mappings to the dependencies, I'm still
learning about Ivy so I don't know if there is a better way.
        <dependency org="junit" name="junit" rev="${junit.version}"


One other thing I had to do was clean the Ivy cache. The source and
javadocs configurations weren't  in the version of junit ivy file in
the cache. IvyDE wasn't much help resolving this as it only gave a
parse error when reading the Ivy file I had look at the Ant output to
see the problem.

This should hopefully work but only for sources I think there is a
known bug with javadocs.
