Subject Re: sorting or ordering of resolved jars

Hi Rob,

I'm not sure that the shadowing is easy to deal with in pure Ivy
(unless the vendor is providing Ivy files with nice configs or you
write your own).  You could look at latest strategies and conflict

But if there are no configs available for you to work from then it may
be simplest to deal with how you set up the classpath in ant with
different pathelements?
