Advanced repository - step 2
Building the professional repository
Now that we have been well prepared, let's go to a real life example of building our repository.
We will now focus on a bigger example that uses different public repositories to retrieve the information.
In this tutorial we will use, in order of preference :
- our home made repository
- ivyrep official
- ibiblio maven2
the resolvers used
<chain name="libraries" returnFirst="false">
<resolver ref="local-repository" />
<resolver ref="ibiblio-maven2" />
We start the chain with our home made repository because as we can expect, we consider this repository as good ivy file repository (that's why we create it). So all files that are in this repository are considered as valid and correct and usuable.
The building process is then an iterative process.
After each import of new projects into our repository, we check and modify the generated ivy files (or you do not as you want). The generated ivy files are those that were translated from a POM or those for which an artifact has been found without a module descriptor (ivy or pom).
What about to test our configuration with a big project : hibernate 3.0
Just run : ant advanced
Here we go !!!!!!!!

Analysing the results
OK, it seems that we have a good start point for our repository.
As you can see in the resolving part of the process :
:: resolving dependencies :: found [ hibernate | hibernate | 3.0 ] in ibiblio-maven2 found [ apache | commons-logging | 1.0.4 ] in official-ivy-rep ... found [ odmg | odmg | 3.0 ] in official-ivy-rep
some ivy files were retrieved from the ivyrep the official ivy repository. That significates that for these modules, you have in your home made repository good ivy files (with meaningfull configurations, ...).
Now what you need to do is to download missing artifacts, those not on ibiblio (from sun, ...) and correct the generated ivy files.
It is important to make a review of the generated ivy files because you could then benefit from all the power of ivy by defining for those projects good configurations and some other good things.
To ease finding generated files, just take a look at the generated resolve report in your cache. You will find there the projects for which a default ivy file was generated
and you can see the resolvers that have resolved the modules. In our example, you will update the files whose project were resolved by the ibiblio-maven2 resolver.
