Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-1182) Ability to install multiple modules with a single install task
Date Wed, 21 Apr 2010 01:43:51 GMT
Ability to install multiple modules with a single install task

                 Key: IVY-1182
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Ant
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0
         Environment: Ubuntu 9.10 AMD64, Ant 1.7.1, Java 1.6.0_15-b03 64-Bit
            Reporter: Andrew

I would like the ability to specify multiple modules to install at once with the ivy:install
task in Ant, and to say 'don't overwrite and don't fail if present', which achieves a few
things. First, I'm installing more than one module here (roughly 20), and I'm not super-happy
about the fact that I have to specify one install task for each, as that typically results
in multiple versions of projects being installed (Apaches commons is especially prone to that).
Now, this might sometimes be a good thing, but I know that all the modules I'm installing
are going to be used by a single project, and it's just annoying to have more than one installed.
The other problem is that each install task will install another copy of a library that already
exists with the same version (e.g. commons-logging 1.1.1), and while that's not a problem
while developing the repository, I'm not sure I'd like that to happen when installing to the
company repository. It also means unnecessary downloads of artifacts.
