Subject RE: 2 Questions for ivyIDE
Date Tue, 20 Mar 2012 17:08:20 GMT
Not sure I understood the first part, but glad to see if I can work it
through. More questions if I prove to be an idiot.

I wasn't publishing sources at all, which probably accounts for the
confusion. Only in the middle of asking the question did the idea occur
that maybe that would help.

The local repository is a cached based repository. The frequency of the
updates is specified in the ivysettings file.  Check out <cache><ttl>
elements (Personally I specify all my cache settings to be in my
folder, and in eclipse set the resolve to occur within the workspace)

How are you publishing your sources in ivy ? Eclipse will retrieve them
if you publish them properly.
