Subject [jira] [Created] (IVYDE-304) Support Workspace/Filesystem/Variables for "Ivy File" setting
Date Tue, 15 May 2012 21:09:06 GMT
J.C. Hamlin created IVYDE-304:

             Summary: Support Workspace/Filesystem/Variables for "Ivy File" setting
                 Key: IVYDE-304
             Project: IvyDE
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 2.2.0.beta1
         Environment: Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit, MyEclipse 9.1 64-bit, Java 1.6.0_31 64-bit
            Reporter: J.C. Hamlin

We have a large enterprise project with many modules, and each module has multiple projects
per module. Each module's projects share the same ivy.xml and ivysettings.xml files located
in a central location.

IvyDE seems to support nicely locating the Ivy settings file outside of the project. However,
not so much for the ivy.xml file.

We'd like to use IvyDE with the ivy.xml file outside of the project (like in a common build
project), but currently the "Ivy File" (saved in the ivyXmlPath in the .classpath container)
configuration only supports paths relative to the project root. It would be ideal if that
supported the same location references as the "Ivy settings path" (saved in the ivySettingsPath
in the .classpath container), which can be things like a "Workspace" ${workspace_loc:} reference,
any Eclipse variable, or any path on the file system.

I tried hacking into the ivyXmlPath in the .classpath to contain a relative path like ../builder/ivy.xml,
and also tried ${workspace_loc:builder/ivy.xml}, and such, but, as expected, it doesn't work.

Is there a way for multiple eclipse projects to share the same ivy.xml file stored in a common
project? If not, could you enhance IvyDE to support it please?
