Subject Managing external tool with ivy
Date Tue, 11 Jan 2011 06:09:49 GMT


  I'm trying to manage versions of a tool used as part of the build
process, not a dependency of the app itself.  I've packaged it into a
zip and put it into our local repository.  This zip is then resolved by
ivy and the appropriate version is downloaded, then the build itself
unpacks the zip ready for the tool to be used.


At the moment I'm doing an ant <condition/><filesmatch></condition> to
check if the tool zip has changed since the last build (I keep a copy
when I unpack it separately).  This saves me unpacking it every build,
but since the tool zip is large I still get a 5-10 second penalty for
the binary file comparison.


Is there any way I can get feedback from ivy to say if the dependency
has changed?
