Subject [jira] Commented: (IVYDE-208) Ivy Resolve Visualizer
Date Sat, 03 Oct 2009 09:14:23 GMT


Ivica Loncar commented on IVYDE-208:

Nice work. I was prepared to do something similar, but now there is no need to re-invent the
wheel. Thanks. ;-)

Couple of suggestions/requests:
 - I would like this feature to run on eclipse 3.4.x since all of our clients that use ivy
also use Rational development tools
 - Users should be able to choose ivy configuration that should be visualized. When users
add multiple ivy containers to the classpath they see classpath container named like: "ivy.xml
[conf1]" but in the visualizer there are multiple "Project name (ivy.xml)" entries. I think
the label should be "Project name (ivy.xml/conf1)".

There are "Previous view" and "Go forward one plugin" icons in the view toolbar but I can't
see the icons and I do have org.eclipse.ui enabled in the target platform.
Do you know why these shared images are not loading? What could be missing?

> I am kind of excited about this one.  I would like to be able to see the resolve report
depicted graphically, showing me clearly how particular dependencies wound up on the classpath,
what nodes got evicted, what dependencies a particular transitive dependency has, etc etc.
 Ivy can sometimes fall into the category of "automagically" doing so much for us on the classpath,
that developers can take it for granted.  Especially when a version conflict arises out of
a resolution (by which two different revisions are resolved that aren't under the same eviction
context), I see developers getting very confused.  I hope this visualization will help them
