Subject Re: Multi-module dependency configuration

Yep, sure thing Pavel. Here's a zip containing the ivy.xmls (actually
6 modules, not 5, sorry), and a brief description of each module:

Authentication produces a jar.
Business-tier produces two different jars (a main one, and a trimmed
version), however the webapp only requires the main one.
Lookups is actually another webapp which results in a war file,
however the webapp is dependent on some of the classes from this
module too. My plan is to expand the lookups war into the exploded
directory of the main webapp prior to creating the webapp war.
Presentation-tier produces both a jar and a zip. The webapp is
dependent on the jar.
Utilities produces a jar.
Finally, the webapp produces the main application's war!

It's a bit of a confusing layout. It's all a legacy system which I'm
trying to improve by at least sorting out the dependency management,
as we don't currently have a very good idea of how it's all related :\

Thanks again for your help!
