Subject [jira] Commented: (IVYDE-104) Display all resolved libraries in order
Date Sun, 10 Aug 2008 20:33:44 GMT


Jason A. Guild commented on IVYDE-104:

Sorry for the confusion. I mixed multiple points together hastily.

Editing and applying workspace-level options works just fine as you expect, including the
"Order alphabetically the classpath entries" feature. However:
 # The feature is one of many (and last) on a busy property screen which caused me to miss
it in the first place. It should be made more prominent.
 # I don't like the UI (a check box for that), because it doesn't give any indication what
order the libraries will be display in when it is NOT checked...which was one reason for my
opening this issue in the first place -- the displayed libraries didn't appear to be in any
order to me. Instead, I propose this option be exposed as a drop box or radio group with two
items "resolution", "alphabetical" to make it clear. If other orderings/groupings make sense
(e.g. grouped by organization) then those should be listed there as well.

In 2.00alpha1, enabling  project-specific Ivy-configuration is broken for me. When I enable
the project-specific configuration the whole plugin blows up and I lose my classpath container
entirely.  But that is beside the point...even if it was working properly, my other point
is that the project-specific Ivy configuration page/screen does not ALSO have a way to specify
an project-specific ordering for display of libraries which is separate from the workspace
configuration. Perhaps this is not so important though.

bq. Then about that shortcut in a context menu I am afraid that will not be possible in the
general case. In the case the project is not configured "locally", and is relying on the global
configuration, having a entry to configure the order locally has no sense.

After thinking a bit about this, I see what you mean about the inconsistent semantics. I was
attempting address my #1 above, thinking that adding an item to the context menu would make
the option more prominent. I think both of my po

> The display listing of libraries resolved in Eclipse package explorer should be in some
kind of predictable order.  It can be frustrating when you are looking through a long list
of libraries and can't see the one you are looking for fast.
> Right now, libraries are listed in what appears to be random order and should either
be in order of resolution or (preferrably) sorted order by library name.
