Interesting. Ever thought of contributing work to the guys at Archiva? The Grapher would be
an interesting feature to have in it!

Subject: Ivy Tools Suite now available!

I use Ivy daily in large projects, and it's made life a whole lot  
easier.  But I always felt it was lacking in tools for managing and  
browsing repositories - so I wrote some.  A suite of tools, actually.   
They're all open-source, available on my Google Code project (Ivy- 

To download and use these (they're all Java WebStart, requiring JRE  
1.6+), go to my project page at:

What are the tools?  There are four of them:

Ivy Browser - Search an Ivy repository for libraries, packages, and  
versions by key words.  Click on a line in the UI to paste the needed  
text into your Ivy file.

Ivy Builder - Easily add new items into your repository, and link the  
dependencies to existing items.  Generates the repository XML file and  
needed checksums.

Ivy Grapher - My favorite!  Graph your Ivy reports (in the .ivy  
folder) to see what's not being used. Redundant or evicted revisions  
called out by your ivy.xml file show up in red.  Example images are  
visible on a link here.  Note that this application needs AT&T's  
GraphViz viewer to be installed to work (OS X, Linux, and Windows) -


Ivy Formatter: - Easily format your Ivy files so they're pretty.   
Lines up all those orgs, modules, revs, etc.

Feedback is appreciated - bugs welcome.  This is a Google Code  
project, so if you've got ideas, contributors are welcome.
