Subject Re: How to add a complex project such as Spring or Hibernate to an ivy private Repository?
Date Wed, 13 Apr 2011 20:53:44 GMT

Why are you trying to build an ivy file for hibernate? The latest versions
of hibernate are in the red hat/jboss maven repository here:

When you import hibernate into your own ivy repository (you can
 reuse the build.xml in the build-a-ivy-repository example),
the pom.xml is converted to an ivy.xml file.

Note if you need to import a lot of libraries from maven, you may need to
across multiple repositories:

- Netty/JBoss (above) - projects sponsored by Red Hat
- Java/Oracle ( - for J2EE jars (such as
mail) because the Oracle license bars the other maven repositories from
distributing the jars
- Apache nightly
( - if you
need to work off nightly apache code because a feature you require hasn't
been released yet.
- Jetty ( - if you cannot find
a specific jetty jar version in the main maven repository (most likely not
- Maven main ( - everything else.

Hope this is helpful.
