Subject Re: IVY Clearcase integration

Thanks for your response.

In our project, we used some 3rd parties libraries which most of them
already be available in Maven repository,  but also some private libraries
and libraries from the company like Oracle we cannot find them in
public Maven repository, indeed we cannot publish them to public, so I
believe this is must to build our enterprise level - shared repository.

That's right we can put ivy.xml itself is again managed by clearcase, but
we also need set up place to put the share repository which all
team members can retrieve. I think thinking of perhaps a
shared HTTP-based  file server could be option but this
adds additional hardware, maintain cost  and complex in our system.

This is why I thought we can check-in to clearcase as clearcase is already
a running service in our setup, we don't want each developers manually
update the share repository to local. Instead, implement own clearcase
resolver. But looks this is not easy or even not feasible as using Java to
retrieve clearcase files so I am asking is any better solution. looks nexus
could be one but I am not sure it is free or license.
