Subject Re: [build] build error due to failing dependency zip (HARMONY-5609)

I'm also not familiar with Ivy.

I suggested maven because of the dependency management. You can automate it.
The biggest problem I had with this build was having to download several
dependencies by myself and finding mirror repositories. These problems are
pretty much solved in maven.
