Subject [jira] Reopened: (IVY-1270) Ant Ivy install task not working with all resolvers
Date Tue, 01 Mar 2011 10:33:36 GMT


Thomas Glaeser reopened IVY-1270:

This and similar problems were already discussed on the mailing list with no solution found.

The use case is precisely about resolving from an artifact repository that does +not+ provide
Ivy descriptors. Usually all Maven repositories don't offer an Ivy descriptor. This use case
is identical to using the {{ibiblio}} resolver with {{usepoms}} set to {{false}}.

According to the documentation the {{ivy}} element from {{filesystem}} and {{url}} resolvers
is optional, meaning Ivy should not look for, or expect to find Ivy discriptors. In this scenario,
Ivy is only able to retrieve plain {{jar}} files without classifier. To me, this seems to
be a bug.

> When setting the {{from}} resolver on the Ant Ivy {{install}} task to {{ibiblio}}, I'm
able to download all the artifacts belonging to one module from the public maven repository.
However using other resolvers like {{url}} and {{filesystem}} will only retrtieve artifacts
of type {{jar}}.
> Using {{from}} resolvers {{url}} and {{filesystem}}, downloading artifacts of type {{zip}}
is not working nor is is possible to retrieve artifacts with a {{[classifier]}} pattern.
> If this is not a bug and there is a workaround, please provide some guideline in the
the documentation how to implement something like this. It seems to be a very valid use case.
