I'm not an expert with the way Ivy maps Maven goals to ivy 
configurations (if you find documentation on this, let me know), but 
I'd try:


or, if you just want the runtime dependencies:


That should prevent you from getting any optional configurations, and 
give you the dependent jars and any sources as well.

For the record, if I do an ivy:install of stripes from the maven repo, 
here are the configurations Ivy generates from the pom:

                 <conf name="default" visibility="public" 
description="runtime dependencies and master artifact can be used with 
this conf" extends="runtime,master"/>
                 <conf name="master" visibility="public" 
description="contains only the artifact published by this module 
itself, with no transitive dependencies"/>
                 <conf name="compile" visibility="public" 
description="this is the default scope, used if none is specified. 
Compile dependencies are available in all classpaths."/>
                 <conf name="provided" visibility="public" 
description="this is much like compile, but indicates you expect the 
JDK or a container to provide it. It is only available on the 
compilation classpath, and is not transitive."/>
                 <conf name="runtime" visibility="public" 
description="this scope indicates that the dependency is not required 
for compilation, but is for execution. It is in the runtime and test 
classpaths, but not the compile classpath." extends="compile"/>
                 <conf name="test" visibility="private" 
description="this scope indicates that the dependency is not required 
for normal use of the application, and is only available for the test 
compilation and execution phases." extends="runtime"/>
                 <conf name="system" visibility="public" 
description="this scope is similar to provided except that you have to 
provide the JAR which contains it explicitly. The artifact is always 
available and is not looked up in a repository."/>
                 <conf name="sources" visibility="public" 
description="this configuration contains the source artifact of this 
module, if any."/>
                 <conf name="javadoc" visibility="public" 
description="this configuration contains the javadoc artifact of this 
module, if any."/>
                 <conf name="optional" visibility="public" 
description="contains all optional dependencies"/>
