Subject Re: Need JAR-files not available in ibiblio (for JavaMail), suggestions
Date Mon, 04 May 2009 20:03:43 GMT

if it's Javax things your after then a lot of it is on

My resolver to use that looks like

<property name="ivy.shared.m2.ivy.pattern" 
<property name="ivy.shared.m2.artifact.pattern" 


<url name="" m2compatible="true">

<chain name="shared">
<resolver ref=""/>

It is a good idea to run an enterprise mirror anyway, have a look at

We run three:
1. mirror - mirrors ibiblio etc so we can build without the world being 
available and control which jars we use in prod code.
2. manual - like the above but not easy to mirror from the wild (e.g., 
some DB drivers).
3. publish - where we publish our own jars etc.
