Subject RE: How to get sources for transitive dependencies with IvyDE
Date Sun, 16 Aug 2009 23:03:43 GMT
This is the relevant subset of my ivy.xml file.

      <conf name="core"/>
      <conf name="war"/>
      <dependency org="org.apache.myfaces.tomahawk" name="tomahawk" rev="1.1.6" conf="core->default,sources;
        <exclude org="javax.servlet" name="jstl" />

The 'core' config is used for the Eclipse classpath.  This is the relevant subset of the Ivy
report for the whole ivy.xml file.  Sensitive (but not relevant) information has been X'ed
out.  As I indicated, there's no question that the commons-validator source artifact will
be retrieved if the sources conf is specified for it... it just isn't transitively applied
as you can see from the report xml.  The ivy.xml for tomahawk is just the default that is
generated by Ivy when resolving a module from a Maven 2 repo ( in this case).

Can you give provide a library which you are trying to pull and you
don't get sources?
Also your ivyconf/ivy.xml will be nice.
