Subject setting classpath
Date Mon, 18 Apr 2011 13:56:27 GMT

I think the usual procedure to set the classpath via Ivy is to use the cachepath-task.
So I assume the following is a very common structure:

<target name="resolve" depends="ivy.bootstrap" description="--> resolve and retrieve
dependencies with ivy">
         <ivy:resolve />
         <ivy:cachepath pathid="build.path" conf="build" />
         <ivy:cachepath pathid="runtime.path" conf="runtime" />
         <ivy:cachepath pathid="test.path" conf="test" />

<target name="compile"  depends="resolve" description="Compile Component Source">
     <javac target="1.6" srcdir="src" destdir="classes" debug="true" classpathref="build.path"

However if you do it like that Ant will always resolve prior to compiling.
Since resolving can potentially be very slow I wonder if there's a more convenient approach
that allows to make the cachepath persistent somehow (e.g. I resolved last week and
want to use that cachepath in the next ten compilations without resolving again).

Anybody ?
