Subject [jira] Created: (IVYDE-272) IvyDE deletes entire project!
Date Wed, 19 Jan 2011 22:44:45 GMT
IvyDE deletes entire project!

                 Key: IVYDE-272
             Project: IvyDE
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: workspace resolver
    Affects Versions: 2.1.0
         Environment: Eclipse Version: 3.6.1.r361_v20100909-9gF78GrkFqw7GrsZnvz0JWNTeb6fue6896L
Build id: M20100909-0800
IvyDE Version
Running on MacBook Pro running Mac OS X Leopard 10.6.5
            Reporter: Kevin G
            Priority: Critical

With the "Delete old retrieve artifacts" option active, the IvyDE extension deleted my entire
project directory!  The only thing in my workspace project folder is a list of jars (resolved
from my ivy file, which was deleted)!!!

After looking into this further, I think this most likely happened because my retrieve pattern
did not contain /lib.  It was just:
[artifact]-[revision].[ext]  (I may have had an ivy property on the front as in ${project.lib}/[artifact]-[revision].[ext])

Still, this should never happen!
Luckily, I had everything checked into version control but this could have been a disaster.

Steps I took:

I installed IvyDE about 15 minutes ago, via Eclipse Marketplace.  After eclipse restart I
right clicked on the project and chose Build Path > Add Libraries > IvyDE Managed Dependencies.

On the main tab, I chose my ivy file from the workspace.
On the settings tab, I enabled project specific settings and chose my settings file and properties
file from the workspace.
On the retrieve tab, I enabled project specific settings, chose "do retrieve after resolve"
and set my retrieve pattern to the exact value of my ivy.retrieve.pattern variable which was
[artifact]-[revsion].[ext] (I may have had a property on the front like ${project.lib} which
is in my ivy properties file)
On the advanced tab, I enabled project specific settings and set "order of the classpath entries"
to lexical

I clicked FINISHED and it deleted my entire project!!!!!
Leaving only the jars in it's place.

*** The person fixing this should verify that this does not happen when the retrieve pattern
contains unknown variable such as:

Also, if the artifact variable is going to result in the entire project being deleted, at
least a warning should be displayed. Perhaps red text at the bottom that displays:
Warning: all files in the directory /full/path/to/directory/derived/from/retrieve/pattern
will be deleted.

Where the full path to the retrieve location is derived based on the retrieve pattern.

Lastly, I would recommend changing the default pattern for types from * to *.jar
That one change, alone, would have prevented this from happening.
