Subject Issues with listModules & Branches
Date Fri, 30 Apr 2010 23:57:31 GMT
I'm working with ivy 2.1.0 and seem to be having some issues getting at some of the metadata
that is supposed to be available.

Currently I'm trying to get a list of all modules in the repository regardless of what branch
they are in (and I want to know what branch they are in).  I have tried this with two methods,
both of which seem to bring me to a dead-end (through the ivy ant-tasks and through direct
access to the ivy API).

Here is the ant task call that I use:
<ivy:listmodules organisation="MyOrg" module="*" revision="*" branch="*" property="ivy.modules.[module].[branch].[revision]"

When I try to print out all of the ivy.modules.* properties I get one for each module, but
it ignores the branches.

When I try a similar call through the API:
ModuleRevisionId[] ids = ivy.listModules(ModuleRevisionId
					.newInstance("MyOrg", "*",
							PatternMatcher.ANY_EXPRESSION, "*"), ivy.getSettings()

I get back a list of module ids.  Some of which are duplicated (I'm assuming these are ones
from the branches as well as non-branches).  However, when I loop through them and use getBranch()
on each of the ids it returns null.

Also, if I use ivy.findModule(id) and look for the branch in there, it also has null for the

Any ideas on how to do this?  Is there a way I can query the repo for a list of branches?
 I know our settings work with branching because all of our projects that use the branches
work correctly.  It is only when we try and get some report information from the ivy repository
that we seem to be having trouble.
