The workspace resolver is considering the ivy.xml files in you eclipse projects as a real
repository, so they need to be complete enough to make the transitive resolve work, thing
that doesn't happen in Ant. When building in Ant the ivy.xml in your project is just the root
of the dependencies.
Have you check this doc ?

As wrote Levi, there is the dynamic resolve mode to setup too in your ivysettings. I'll add
it to the doc.
