Not Zippy:

Many thanks, but apparently I really didn't understand. With the help of
the documentation, I tried:

    <cache name="local-cache" useOrigin="true" defaultTTL="eternal">
      <ttl revision="latest.integration" duration="200ms"/>

What I thought I was setting was "don't bother to update most of the JAR
files (which are third-party and unlikely to change) but for
latest.integration (all the stuff we are building) only use the cache
for 200 milliseconds (essentially not doing so at all)". Unfortunately,
the actual result is exactly the same as before. The local repository
(cache) is not updated when the global repository is built to.

Any further advice?

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.
