Subject [jira] Commented: (IVYDE-265) Ivy DE does not associate source artifacts with extensions other than '.zip' to associated binaries & it also does not associate source artifacts with names other than the binary artifacts, in Eclipse

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVYDE-265?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12932449#action_12932449
] 

Nicolas Lalevée commented on IVYDE-265:
---------------------------------------

1. IvyDE actually doesn't care at all about the extension of the file. Are you sure the extension
is the issue ? What are the type and the name of the "jar" and the "source" artifacts ?

2. With IVYDE-230, it will be possible in IvyDE 2.2 to make IvyDE consider the only source
jar available the source of every binary artifact. It seems it will fit your use case, doesn't
it ?

On the note, it is always difficult to make a software do automatically what we can do manually,
a software compute and doesn't think. So unless we find the algoithm to make IvyDE find the
proper mapping, there is no way it can read our mind ;)

> IvyDE does not associate source artifacts to binaries within Eclipse in the following
cases:
> 1. when the source artifact has an extension other than '.zip' : e.g. commons-lang-2.5,
which has a source extension of '.jar'. Many artifacts follow this convention - so this is
quite an irritant, having to rename artifacts just because IvyDE can not associate them correctly.
> 2. when the source artifact has a different name than the binary - e.g. in the case of
JUnit, where JUnit delivers junit-2.8.2-src.jar, which is common for 2 binary artifacts: junit-2.8.2.jar
and junit-2.8.2-dep.jar. The source jar is a superset, covering both binaries. So, while this
case is unusual, IvyDE should support associating super-set source artifacts to binaries with
potentially different names within Eclipse.
> Note that both are possible manually in Eclipse (without IvyDE). Therefore these cases
should be covered by IvyDE transparently to the user.
