Subject Re: Help publishing from one repository to another repository
Date Sat, 18 Sep 2010 05:25:15 GMT
Scott, if you're getting something from repository A and pushing it out to
repository B, you don't want to cut out the middleman that is the Ivy client
and the Ivy cache.

So I would recommend:
1. Do an ivy:resolve of the module you care about in repository A. I imagine
this would be with transitive="false".
2. Do an ivy:cachefileset of what you just resolved.
3. Copy the fileset to a staging location in your project, not unlike what
you'd have if your project was building the artifacts rather than just
getting them from somewhere else.
4. Do an ivy:deliver that specifies a pubrevision whereby you'd be taking
the copied ivy.xml and producing another one with the revision you want.
5. Do an ivy:publish of the delivered ivy.xml and its associated artifacts.

Note that you're going from repository A to cache and then from cache to
staging location and finally to repository B.

Now, there's one complication I've glossed over. The files obtained by
ivy:cachefileset will have the revision in their names, like
foo-2.0.235.jar. One approach is to manually strip the revision portion of
the name, but this seems a bit hacky and manual. Maybe the better approach
is to use an Ivy cache whose ivyPattern and artifactPattern leave the
revision out of the filenames.
