Subject RE: Configuration Fails on Mac due to UNC paths in ivy settings
Date Thu, 20 Oct 2011 18:11:17 GMT
I use a file which specifies the path for those filesystem resolvers. So on
my Unix hosts, that property file uses the Unix path to the mountpoint for the filesystem,
and on Windows it uses UNC.

Subject: Configuration Fails on Mac due to UNC paths in ivy settings

Hi all,

How can I get the mac to parse my setting file even though it has unc paths for resolvers
which the mac won't use?

I have a cross platform build and a common ivy settings files used by all.
 This includes http resolvers for ibiblio etc and internal.  Some resolvers are used by all
builds, others are for windows only.  Some of the windows only use UNC paths.

On mac the configuration step fails as shown below.

I see my options as:
- add webservers to all fileservers and remove all UNC paths
- use multiple settings files (this violates D-R-Y principle and adds work)
- use some ivy mechanism to tell the config step to skip win only resolvers when executing
on mac

What approach is the standard or favored approach?
