Subject [jira] [Created] (IVYDE-311) IvyDE does not allow setting of Ivy Home or honor setting of IVY_HOME environment variable
Date Wed, 27 Jun 2012 21:26:43 GMT
J.C. Hamlin created IVYDE-311:
---------------------------------

             Summary: IvyDE does not allow setting of Ivy Home or honor setting of IVY_HOME
environment variable
                 Key: IVYDE-311
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/IVYDE-311
             Project: IvyDE
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: ivysettings editor
    Affects Versions: 2.2.0.beta1
         Environment: MyEclipse 9.1 64-bit, JDK 1.6.0_31 64-bit, Windows 7 Enterprise SP1
64-bit
            Reporter: J.C. Hamlin
            Priority: Minor


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).
