Subject [jira] [Commented] (IVYDE-311) IvyDE does not allow setting of Ivy Home or honor setting of IVY_HOME environment variable
Date Sat, 30 Jun 2012 12:17:42 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVYDE-311?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13404479#comment-13404479
] 

Nicolas Lalevée commented on IVYDE-311:
---------------------------------------

Actually Ivy is sensible to the variable 'ivy.home', and not the environment variable IVY_HOME.
I guess you have some Ant task which transform one into the other.
You could set the 'ivy.home' variable via a property in an ivysettings.xml, or via a Java
system property to be set on Eclipse in its eclipse.ini.

But a UI would make sense, maybe by implementing IVYDE-282.

> IvyDE does not seem to honor the setting of the environment variable IVY_HOME, nor does
it allow you to configure where you want your Ivy Home to be. It should work like the Ant
plugin does, and allow you to configure, at a workspace level, the location Ivy Home.
> This is important because for many users, the default C:\Users\<username\.ivy2 directory
is not on a fast storage device (like an SSD), and things run *much* faster with the ivy cache
running on an SSD or RAM drive. We are currently using linkd.exe to create an NTFS junction
to the location where we want Ivy Home.
> This however, is also somewhat of a performance hit as going through an NTFS junction
causes some overhead. We can tell, because with a command-line build with IVY_HOME set to
an SSD, it completes 30 seconds faster than with the IVY_HOME unset buy going through the
NTFS junction point (9:30 vs. 10:30).
