Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-1003) Add support for transitive retrieval of source and javadoc artifacts
Date Mon, 21 Feb 2011 14:53:38 GMT


P. Rasinous commented on IVY-1003:

Same here: I am still using sbt+maven because Ivy is so quirky about downloading dependencies.

In addition to the ability to retrieve transitive dependencies, I _really need_:
* a global setting that will retrieve sources for dependencies and transitive dependencies
so that I don't have to keep marking up each individual dependency
* not blow up when something is missing - I can understand that someone, somewhere, at some
point, must have wanted this behaviour but it is just not a sane default for everyone....

>             Project: Ivy
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Core
>    Affects Versions: 2.0-RC2

>         Attachments: IVY-1003-r835571.patch
> Currently, IVY only supports retrieving 'jar' artifacts transitively (using the 'transitive'
attribute of a dependency), as documented [here|].
> It would be very nice if IVY would also support transitive retrieval of the source and
javadoc artifacts. 
> This would require two extra attributes for the dependency element:
> * transitive-source
> * transitive-javadoc
> To ensure backwards compatibility, these attributes should be optional and should default
to false.
