The error means that your commons-httpclient module depends on the 'ide' configuration of
your commons-logging module, but your commons-logging module doesn't has an 'ide' configuration.

Your commons-httpclient Ivy file probably contains something like (the exact value of the
conf attribute may look different in your situation):
<dependency org="apache" name="commons-logging" rev="1.0.+" conf="ide->ide" />

So in order to fix this problem, you'll have to correct the Ivy files in your repository.

Older versions of Ivy were more tolerant about non-existing configurations, so that's probably
the reason why it works in your Eclipse 3.2 which probably uses an older Ivy...

We use Eclipse 3.2 with IvyIDE around here and for a number of reasons I would like to move
to 3.5. I've installed the IvyIDE plugin but am getting a number of unresolved dependency
errors importing existing projects, like this one:

unresolved dependency: apache#commons-httpclient;3.0.+: java.text.ParseException: Cannot add
dependency 'apache#commons-logging;1.0.+' to configuration 'ide' of module apache#commons-httpclient;3.0.1
because this configuration doesn't exist! in file:/C:/workspace/builds/ivy-cache/apache/commons-httpclient-3.0.1/commons-httpclient-3.0.1-ivy.xml.original

I can't understand the error, what configuration file supposedly does not exist? As I mentioned,
everything resolves in Eclipse 3.2.
Any help resolving this would be greatly appreciated.
