Subject [jira] Commented: (IVYDE-208) Ivy Resolve Visualizer
Date Tue, 06 Oct 2009 07:22:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVYDE-208?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12762535#action_12762535

Ivica Loncar commented on IVYDE-208:
------------------------------------

I'm thinking about this resolution visualizer and I find more uses for it as an additional
page in ivy.xml editor.

Making ivy resolution visualizer part of the ivy.xml editor could make the view available
for additional "visual" tasks like: 
 - exclude dependency
 - remove transient dependencies
 - exploration of different versions, etc.

What do you think?

> 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
understand.
