Subject AW: Programmatic use of Ivy
Date Tue, 20 Oct 2009 13:18:07 GMT

I think this is a big issue that need to be resolved some day. The good features of ivy are
hardwired to the use of ANT. A lot of documented features are implemented directly within
the ANT-extension of Ivy. This prevents them from being used standalone. As an example using
Ant variables to store state.

I tried to write an Ivy extension for Apache buildr using the Java-API. In the end I had to
go through ANT (using Antwrap) because all the cool stuff you want to use with Ivy is in the
ANT targets.
A lot of Refactoring needs to be done, so that the features can be used as API and Ant is
only one interface to use Ivy. I hope Ivy changes in this direction, so that it is easy to
choose a different build application with troubles.

Betreff: Programmatic use of Ivy

Hello everyone,

Is there a place where i can find examples or javadocs anything similar for
using Ivy programatically through Java? Some of the mails i see in this list
show that this is possible. But i couldn't find a location where these APIs
are listed. Could someone point me to it?
