Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-1022) Forced resolver behavior is inappropriate for ivy:install
Date Fri, 30 Jan 2009 18:43:03 GMT


Carlton Brown commented on IVY-1022:

I think this should be default behavior.   Can you think of any valid use case where install
chooses a different revision than the user specified?   To me, this seems to break the intended
use of install, though I could be wrong.

> I tried to install a certain revision of a module from a chained resolver to an fs resolver,
and observed that Ivy installed a revision other than what I specified.   After investigation
I noticed that the chain contained a forced fs resolver.   I removed the forced resolver from
the chain, replacing it with an equivalent un-forced fs resolver.   The install worked correctly
after that.

 It should in every case use the literal module identifiers that are passed to it.   This
being the case, install should ignore a force attribute wherever it is encountered.
