Subject Published jars for test, pilot, and production environments?
Date Tue, 19 May 2009 17:26:36 GMT
I'm hoping someone else is in a similar situation.  We have some utility jars used by multiple
projects.  These jars have three different versions: one each for our test, pilot, and production
environments.  Therefore I believe each of the versions needs to be published so it will be
available for multiple apps to use.

When an app builds, it should get the latest version of the jar depending on the environment.
 The ivy.xml would contain:
            <dependency org="principal" name="utility_jar" rev="latest.integration"/>

I'd like to do something like:
        ant compile -Denv=test
for it to build with the latest test jar, -Denv=pilot to build with the latest pilot jar,

My idea is to have three different versions of the settings file, and just change the root
of a resolver based on the environment.
          <property name="ivy.shared.default.root" value="/IvyRepository/test"/> would
specify the root of the 'shared' resolver for the test environment.  "/IvyRepository/pilot"
would exist for pilot, etc.

The problem I see with this is that the local cache would contain versions from all environments
(depending on which one you built with last) and would have to be cleared out every time.

Am I overthinking the problem?  Is there a way to only have one repository but still be able
to specify the latest jar from a specific environment?
