Subject [jira] Updated: (IVY-908) UNIX-style filenames for paths to work on MS-Windows
Date Fri, 19 Sep 2008 08:20:44 GMT


Andy Seaborne updated IVY-908:

Does this include checking the documentation?  The example of "/path/to/repositiory" is from
the documentation (various places) and it ivy and any both say that using / or \ on windows
does not matter.  So a MS Windows user (not just cygwin users) may be lead to think that "/path/to/something"
is going to be OK.  Time will tell!

>                 URL:
>             Project: Ivy
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-RC1
>         Environment: cywgin on MS Wondows.
>            Reporter: Andy Seaborne
>            Priority: Minor
> A file name /path/to/repository is not absolute on MS-Windows.  A drive letter is needed.
> This is particularly confusing if using cygwin but is true when using Windows without
cygwin ("/" is an acceptable path separator).
> Leads to less portability between Linux and Windows.
> In 2.0-RC-1, more paths must be absolute (e.g filesystem resolver artifact pattern, keyfile
to sftp resolver).
