Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-908) UNIX-style filenames for paths to work on MS-Windows
Date Wed, 17 Sep 2008 15:35:45 GMT


Matt Benson commented on IVY-908:

No Java process I've ever heard of has any support for cygwin.  Java on cygwin == Java on
Windows.  You can achieve portability either by basing everything from the current directory
(should be properly supported in the current development line intended for release as Ivy
2.0) or injecting a base directory; in either case the paths you feed Ivy are relative.  Anything
absolute (not relative to a base directory) should be externally injected e.g. with properties.
 I would call this report INVALID.

>          Issue Type: Improvement
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-RC1
>         Environment: cywgin on MS Wondows.

>            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).
