Subject Building a little bit more advanced repository, any tutorial or information out there?
Date Fri, 08 May 2009 11:25:09 GMT

I have an ivy.xml which looks something like: (for proper formatting: )

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ivy-module version="2.0"
		<conf name="runtime" description="" />
		<conf name="compile" extends="runtime" description="" />
		<dependency org="org.apache.wicket" name="wicket" rev="1.3.5"
			<exclude org="org.apache.portals.bridges" module="portals-bridges-common"/>
			<exclude org="javax.portlet" module="portlet-api"/>
		<dependency org="junit" name="junit" rev="4.5"
conf="runtime->default;foride->sources,javadoc" />
		<dependency org="org.apache.wicket" name="wicket-spring-annot"
rev="1.3.5" conf="runtime->default;foride->sources,javadoc"/>
		<dependency org="org.slf4j" name="slf4j-log4j12" rev="1.5.6"
		<dependency org="org.slf4j" name="jcl-over-slf4j" rev="1.5.6"
		<!-- Some dependencies removed -->

My current ivy.xml uses the default repository ibiblio in Maven2-mode.

What I would like is:

1. Have a company repository with copies of everything I usually take
from ibiblio.

2. Also have some JAR's in that repository which are not in ibiblio,
like JavaMail and Activation, both from Sun.

3. In the Ivy resolution on the client machines, try the company
repository first, then try ibiblio.

Motivation for 3 is that if I add something to my ivy.xml which is
available in ibiblio I could get it directly, while my company
repository might be synchronized with ibiblio once each day. Also if
my company repository is down it might be nice to fall back on ibiblio
for non licensed files (and hope that JavaMail etc is in the local
cache already).

Is there any information out there for this scenario? It seems like it
would be a common scenario. I can't find any, and I don't know where
to start. If I just can get some more information I'll try to create a
blog post about it or something, in case there is a lack of
information on the net.

Thank you for reading! I hope you can help me out. Have a nice weekend!

Best regards, Kent
