Maybe a simple example would help?

If you are familiar with ant, then you should be able to decode this little
project <>. All it does
is use ivy to pull in a few JARs during the build, test, etc. phases. It
uses some included ant macros to simplify the build.xml, etc. The ivy files
are under trunk/src/ivy.

There is a separate "public" ivy file that is used to represent this code
module in a repository, which is viewable (styled as HTML)
