Subject RE: Multiple artifacts
Date Fri, 22 Oct 2010 19:09:25 GMT

Thanks so much for the suggestion, but neither adding type nor conf (no
matter what setting I used of my public configurations, including "*")
made any difference whatever. This was a good idea, but I agree, it
looks as though it's only interested in the artifact that has the same
name as the module. But surely that can't be the only thing Ivy can do.

I'd really hate to have to create a whole separate project just for 3
Java classes in order to accommodate Ivy. The whole reason I don't care
for Maven is that it dictates too much of my project behavior - that's
what interested me in Ivy in the first place.

Any other notions? Anyone?

My guess is what's going on is it's settling into a default behavior
it's just publishing the artifact that has the same name as the module.

What I notice about your artifact elements that's a little off is that
they're not specifying a type attribute or (this may be the real
problem) a
conf attribute. Try:
   <artifact name="dsi-springmvc" type="jar" conf="default" />
   <artifact name="dsi-springmvc-tags" type="jar" conf="default" />

This is presuming you're specifying a conf literally called "default".
