Subject IvyDE & properties files
Date Fri, 14 Oct 2011 05:05:16 GMT
I'm having some interesting experiences with IvyDE 2.1.0 while trying to
apply properties files to the Ivy settings I want to use.
First the merely annoying interesting experience. If I go to click the File
System... button under "Property files:", the dialog box that shows up
filters by *.xml file type. Obviously, at this point, it's not XML files
that I'm looking for. I have to do a double-take every time I come across
this and ask myself, "What happened to my properties file?"
Next the more troubling interesting experience. Note that it says "Property
files:" plural. If I click on File System: more than once, the newly added
file path gets prepended to the existing path, with no separator, as if it
was just one long, run-on filename. Suppose, though, that I do put in a
platform-specific file path separator--say a semicolon. When I go to add
"IvyDE Managed Dependencies" to a given project, the settings parsing will
fail when it encounters this multi-file path, confusing it for a single
file. The error message will be:
"The property file ...;... was not found."
I get the same failure if I use one or more workspace locations as opposed
to file system paths, or mixing the two.
So there's no way to apply multiple properties files to an Ivy settings used
for IvyDE? Forgive me if I'm asking a question here that has already been
explored on this list.
