Subject Re: example ivy & build.xml file for spring/jsf/hibernate project
Date Thu, 29 Apr 2010 23:38:00 GMT
It looks like you're on the right track with (2).  On the ant target, use
the pattern attribute and the conf attribute to get things in the right
directory.
Here's an example of what I use:
<ivy:retrieve
pattern="${build.lib}/[artifact]-[revision](-[classifier]).[ext]"
sync="true" conf="runtime" />

The pattern attribute tells ivy where to copy the files to.  In my case, I
download all the dependencies specified with the "runtime" conf to the
directory specified by build.lib ant variable.  The
[artifact]-[revision](-[classifier]).[ext] portion tells Ivy how I want the
jar files named in the build lib directory.

In what I've posted, if build.lib = "lib" and my only dependency entry with
a conf of "runtime" is log4j version 1.2.15, I end up with the following
directory structure
 -- lib
     -- log4j-1.2.15.jar

Hope this helps.


Thanks,
topher
