Subject RE: Ant command line override not working?
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2013 16:42:00 GMT
Thanks Nicolas.  I do see in the Ant log that the message does come out after the default Ivy
settings file is loaded.  FWIW, I do have an Ivy settings file that gets loaded but the default
value of 10s always appears in Ant's debug for the property.  Can this property be overridden
on the command line or does it need to be set in the settings file?

Snippets of the Ant log:

Apache Ant(TM) version 1.8.2 compiled on December 20 2010
Setting ro project property: ivy.cache.ttl.default -> 5h
[ivy:configure] Loading jar:file:/C:/EclipseDevelopment/DM-DMV-TEST-REORG/DMWeb/ifabs/ant_home/lib/ivy.jar!/org/apache/ivy/core/settings/
Override ignored for property "ivy.configurations"
Override ignored for property "ivy.cache.ttl.default"
[ivy:configure] setting 'ivy.cache.ttl.default' to '10s'
ivy.cache.ttl.default.ivy.instance -> 10s
Total time: 25 seconds

If you're using the default ivysettings, which is loading the file in Ivy's
jar, what you are seeing is that Ivy ignore the property found is that property file and keep
the one you have set on the command line.
