Subject [jira] Created: (IVY-1191) Allow configuration exclusion for resolve/retrieve/publish/etc
Date Tue, 11 May 2010 14:47:42 GMT
Allow configuration exclusion for resolve/retrieve/publish/etc

                 Key: IVY-1191
             Project: Ivy
          Issue Type: New Feature
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0
            Reporter: Phil Clay
            Priority: Minor

For specifying confs for resolve/retrieve/publish, you can either 
* explicitly specify confs (e.g. "build,deploy,test"), or 
* specify all (e.g. "*"), or
* specify all public (e.g. "*(public)"), or
* specify all private (e.g. "*(private)")

All of these work on the principle of inclusion.  i.e. only include those configurations I
have specified.

I would like the ability to select confs based on exclusion.  i.e. Include everything, except
the ones I have explicitly stated.

The reason is that our build process, by default, builds a LOT of stuff.  Our developers have
the options of turning off certain things to make the builds faster.  (For example, our build
publishes instrumented artifacts for gathering code coverage data during qa cycles.  It would
be nice to be able to turn off the "instrumented" conf without having to know how to turn
on everything but the "instrumented" conf)

I'll propose one option.   (There are probably several ways to do this...)

In the conf string, use the - character to indicate exclusion.  For example:

* conf="*,-instrumented"  would include everything except the instrumented conf
* conf="*(public),-instrumented"  would include all public confs except the instrumented conf
* conf="build,deploy,test,instrumented,-instrumented"  would only include build, deploy, test.
 I'd like this case to be handled, so we can have a default inclusion string (which may include
everything "*", or be a specific list of inclusions "build,deploy,test,instrumented"), but
also be able to negate certain confs simply by concatinating an exclusion string "-instrumented".
