Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-912) Can the getArchiveFileInCache() methods be put on the RepositoryCacheManager interface?
Date Mon, 24 Nov 2008 22:23:44 GMT


Maarten Coene commented on IVY-912:

The problem is that it is possible that the artifact isn't in the cache (can happen if you
set useOrigin="true" on the cache element in your settings.xml).
In that case, the File returned by that method will probably not exist.

You should take a look at the IvyCachePath task to have an example of getting the resolved
artifacts as file paths by using the ResolveReport.
If I'm not mistaken, IvyDE (the eclipse plugin) uses a similar approach.

method is not on the interface.

> Small code snippet to illustrate the current API usage: {noformat} if (repositoryCacheManager
instanceof DefaultRepositoryCacheManager)   {
