Subject [jira] Resolved: (IVYDE-195) "Ivy Dependency Explorer" View for synchronizing revisions across multiple projects in a workspace
Date Mon, 21 Sep 2009 14:54:16 GMT


Nicolas Lalevée resolved IVYDE-195.

    Resolution: Fixed
      Assignee: Nicolas Lalevée

So I integrated with few cosmetic code change: formatting, created an revdepexplorer package.

I had only one worry: IvyClasspathUtil#toIvyFile() will only properly work on ivy file in
the workspace. It is possible to have some absolute path here. I don't think this is a primery
use case and the code won't break (the Eclipse API will see them as read only as far as I
could see). So I just put a TODO.

And I have created a page about the new view in the doc. I would be nice if you can take time
to write some paragraphs about it, how to use it, present some use case.

thanks a lot for your patch Jon !

> When working with multiple projects in a workspace that represent the whole or part of
a larger application, I often want to bring the revisions of dependencies up to a single new
revision all at the same time (notwithstanding the wonderful eviction mechanism inherent to

the workspace by organization, module, and revision and providing a mechanism to synchronize
revisions across projects/classpath containers.
