Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-839) Provide ant task to retrieve information from published ivy modules
Date Thu, 12 Jun 2008 22:50:45 GMT
Provide ant task to retrieve information from published ivy modules

                 Key: IVY-839
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Ant
    Affects Versions: 2.0.0-beta-2
         Environment: Using ivy from ant.
            Reporter: David Maplesden
             Fix For: 2.0-RC1

I was looking for a way to retrieve some of the information that is included in an {{ivy.xml}}
file for a published module when using {{ant}}.

The {{findrevision}} task allows you to retrieve the latest revision for a given module, but
doesn't expose any of the other information that is available about the module.

The {{info}} task allows you to get at the information in an {{ivy.xml}} file but only works
on local files, it doesn't allow you to retrieve the same information from a published module.

I had a quick look at the corresponding source code for these tasks ({{org.apache.ivy.ant.IvyInfo}}
and {{org.apache.ivy.ant.IvyFindRevision}}) and it appears relatively easy to merge them so
that the {{info}} task can run against either a local file or a repository module specified
by the organisation, module and revision pattern (in the same way as with the {{findrevision}}

Doing this would provide better functionality and make the {{findrevision}} task obsolete.

I will try implementing this now myself and provide a patch if I am successful
