Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-762) Type tag in poms not supported
Date Sun, 09 Mar 2008 16:05:46 GMT
Type tag in poms not supported
------------------------------

                 Key: IVY-762
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVY-762
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Maven Compatibility
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-beta-2
            Reporter: Harald Braumann


Ivy does not support the <type> tag in poms and always uses jar as default. If there
is a dependency on an artifact living in a maven2 repository, and that artifact has e.g. the
 following dependency 

<dependency>
  <groupId>foo</groupId>
  <artifactId>bar</artifactId>
  <version>1.0</version>
  <type>dll</type>
</dependency

Ivy resolves this transitive dependency as ``foo#bar;1.0!bar.jar'' instead of ``foo#bar;1.0!bar.dll''.
This severly limits the use of maven2 repositories.

As pointed out by Gilles Scokart on the mailing list, new types can be defined by maven plug-ins.

In many cases, however, the type just corresponds to the file extension. A simple mapping
of type = extension could be used as a first step to support the <type> tag.
