Subject [jira] Created: (IVYDE-208) Ivy Resolve Visualizer
Date Thu, 01 Oct 2009 12:31:23 GMT
Ivy Resolve Visualizer
----------------------

                 Key: IVYDE-208
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVYDE-208
             Project: IvyDE
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Jon Schneider


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.

So far I have built this visualizer with the following features:
1. Automatic highlights of:
- Shortest path to root
- All paths to root
- All callers
- All dependencies
- Other revisions
2.  Filtering options:
- Hide evictions
- Limit depth (only show up to the n-th level transitive dependency)
- Hide selection
3. Focusing:
- Focus on an ivy classpath container
- Focus on a selection
4. Zooming
5. Print screen
