Subject [jira] Commented: (IVYDE-208) Ivy Resolve Visualizer
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2009 19:26:31 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVYDE-208?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12762322#action_12762322
] 

Jon Schneider commented on IVYDE-208:
-------------------------------------

Added configuration conflict detection algorithm and highlighting.  See screenshot-6 for a
visual overview of the additions.  I also attached an example ivy.xml file that has conflicts
so you can see the effect yourself.

Concerning wide graphs, I agree.  My graphs sometimes get somewhat long as well.  I wonder
if I can reorient the nodes on a 45 degree angle (probably not)...  Maybe a newline between
org and name would help narrow the graph somewhat.  I'll play around with it.

Concerning files that are not associated with containers, I heard the same question from developers
here.  I am a little uncomfortable moving forward on this until I hear feedback from Nicolas,
because I am already somewhat abusing the IvyResolveJob (at least using it in a way it wasn't
intended for).  We may have to do a little refactoring in other parts of the plugin to expose
the resolve capability outside of the Job if we are going to pursue this.  I totally agree
that it is an important feature, though.

> 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.
