Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-1158) Make ivy.xml <conf description> available
Date Fri, 08 Jan 2010 09:39:54 GMT
Make ivy.xml <conf description> available

                 Key: IVY-1158
             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">
        <conf name="runtime" description="Runtime Libraries"/>

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 'infotest.configuration.descriptions'.

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]. )
