Subject Simple Ivy/WTP Example
Date Mon, 15 Mar 2010 19:30:00 GMT
Can someone offer a simple example of how to get Ivy to publish dependencies
to /WEB-INF/lib?  I've followed the very simple example in the FAQ and it
doesn't work.

Here's what I'm doing....

(1) I create a WTP Web project.

(2) My {project_root}/ivy.xml contains...

  <dependency org="commons-lang" name="commons-lang" rev="2.0" />

(3) I go to Java Build Path / Libraries / Add Library... and add
"ivy.xml[*]".  The Publish/export dependency is "/WEB-INF/lib".

(4) I go to Java EE Module Dependencies and, as expected, "ivy.xml[*]".

Here's where I fall down...  At this point I expect to see the jar's in my
/WebContent/WEB-INF/lib/ directory.  I don't - it's empty.

So, I then run a <ivy:retrieve /> task and the three commons-lang jar's show
up in the {project_root}/lib directory - not /WebContent/WEB-INF/lib.

Of course, when I export to .war they jar's aren't there since they are in
the wrong directory.

What am I missing?

BTW,  this is plain old Eclipse 3.5 w/IvyDE 2.1.0 final.
