we do something very similar to Michael.  We have a 'provided' conf which is
for artifacts that don't go into the war.

An example ivy.xml from one of our web apps is below.  If the ant file for
resolve and creating classpaths would be useful let me know.


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<ivy-module version="2.0" xmlns:xsi=""

    <info organisation="" module="delta-web" revision="2.0"/>


        <conf name="default" visibility="public"
            description="runtime dependencies and master artifact can be
used with this conf"

        <conf name="master" visibility="public"
            description="contains only the artifact published by this module
itself, with no transitive dependencies"/>

        <conf name="compile" visibility="public"
            description="this is the default scope, used if none is
specified. Compile dependencies are available in all classpaths."/>

        <conf name="provided" visibility="public"
            description="this is much like compile, but indicates you expect
the JDK or a container to provide it. It is only available on the co
mpilation classpath, and is not transitive."/>

        <conf name="runtime" visibility="public"
            description="this scope indicates that the dependency is not
required for compilation, but is for execution. It is in the runtime and
 test classpaths, but not the compile classpath."

        <conf name="test" visibility="private"
            description="this scope indicates that the dependency is not
required for normal use of the application, and is only available for th
e test compilation and execution phases."

        <conf name="system" visibility="public"
            description="this scope is similar to provided except that you
have to provide the JAR which contains it explicitly. The artifact is
always available and is not looked up in a repository."/>

        <conf name="sources" visibility="public"
            description="this configuration contains the source artifact of
this module, if any."/>

        <conf name="javadoc" visibility="public"
            description="this configuration contains the javadoc artifact of
this module, if any."/>

        <conf name="foride" visibility="private"
            description="this configuration contains the source and/or
javadoc artifacts of this modules dependecies for use to provide documenta
tion in IDE."/>
