Subject Importing libraries from ibiblio
Date Fri, 14 Jan 2005 10:06:09 GMT
Hi all,

I just found (via TSS) Ivy [1], a BSD-licensed Ant task to download 
dependencies from artifact repositories, including the Maven repo at 

I've already seen a number of Ant extensions that aim to provide this 
feature, but that one looked particuarily interesting to me as this is 
the first one where dependencies are not describes in the Ant file itself.

What that means is that we can create the list of jars to download from 
our jars.xml or the gump descriptor, and have them automatically 
downloaded from the ibiblio repo. Very few modifications on the current 
build are needed.

That could allow to really reduce the size of both our distro and our 
SVN repository.
