Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-748) Exclude Ant jar from bin-with-deps distribution format
Date Wed, 27 Feb 2008 09:31:51 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVY-748?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12572844#action_12572844

Xavier Hanin commented on IVY-748:
----------------------------------

The bin distrib already use a pretty similar mechanism, just less user friendly: in the bin
distrib we provide ivy.jar, and a build.xml using ivy.jar to download the dependencies described
in the ivy.xml. This requires to have Ant installed as well. 

But I like your idea of a webstart installer based on Ivy itself to download the dependencies
required per profile.

> Currently we package in bin-with-deps distribution all Ivy dependencies, including ant
jar. But this doesn't make sense, people who want to use Ivy with Ant will first install Ant,
then Ivy. So we should exclude ant jar from our bin-with-deps distributions format.
