Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-1158) Make ivy.xml <conf description> available
Date Tue, 12 Jan 2010 10:36:54 GMT


Jan Matèrne commented on IVY-1158:

Workaround with AntContrib and a little bit scripting

{code:xml title="Ant Buildfile"} 
<xmlproperty file="ivy.xml" prefix=".ivyconf" delimiter="@"/>
<script language="javascript"> <![CDATA[
    descriptions = project.getProperty(".ivyconf.ivy-module.configurations.conf(description)").split("@");
    confs        = project.getProperty(".ivyconf.ivy-module.configurations.conf(name)").split("@");
    for(i=0; i<confs.length; i++) {
        project.setNewProperty(".ivyconf.list." + (i+1) + ".conf", confs[i]);
        project.setNewProperty(".ivyconf.list." + (i+1) + ".desc", descriptions[i]);
    project.setNewProperty(".ivyconf.list.length", confs.length);
<ac:for begin="1" end="${.ivyconf.list.length}" param="i">
        <echo file="lib/${.ivyconf.list.@{i}.conf}/.readme.txt" message="${.ivyconf.list.@{i}.desc}"/>

>                 URL:
>             Project: Ivy
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: Ant
>            Reporter: Jan Matèrne
>            Priority: Minor
> You can (an IMHO should) write an explanation of the configuration in the ivy file
> <ivy-module version="2.0">
>     <configurations>
>         <conf name="runtime" description="Runtime Libraries"/>
>     </configurations>
> </ivy-module>
> The Ant task <ivy:info/> makes the names names available, but not the descriptions.

> So the first RFE is making them available (accoding to 'infotest.configurations') as
> Another RFE is enhanding <ivy:retrieve/> to create a describing file in the destination
directory which contains this information.
> E.e. with Ivy pattern lib/[conf]/[artifact].[ext] you would create with <ivy:retrieve
descriptionfile="readme.txt"/> a file lib/runtime/readme.txt with content "Runtime Libraries".
> (!! Recreate old files, but beware that multiple confs could result in the same dir if
the ivy pattern doesnt contain a [conf]. )
