Subject RE: switch jars to ivy mechanism?
Date Tue, 27 Mar 2012 19:52:33 GMT
The JAR files are still in the cache of IVY. The classpath is simply
automatically generated by IVY and points to the JARs in the ivy cache. So
disk space is still used. But you spare lots of space if you have multiple
checkouts :-)
