Subject [jira] Commented: (IVYDE-208) Ivy Resolve Visualizer
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2009 19:02:31 GMT


Ivica Loncar commented on IVYDE-208:

h2. Scroll

I thought it would be nice to have scrollable zoom but I guess we can live without it for

h2. Search behaviour

Some of our projects have a lot of dependencies and graphs tend to get wide so It's hard to
find some of the websphere jars if you don't remember exact name.
I agree... it's not that important feature.

h2. "Focus on file" behaviour

What can be done with configurations that are not exposed as eclipse classpath containers?
Can we get them visualized also?

> 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
