You need the IvyDE plugin [1]

Once you installed that you need to right click on the ivy.xml file and 
select "add Ivy Library". This will add a special Eclipse classpath 
entry for the ivy dependencies.

I think you will also need to set the path to the ivyconf.xml file in 
the projects properties (right click on the project, and select IVY).

To update the dependencies, right click on the ivy.xml Library entry in 
the package explorer and select "Resolve".
