Subject Re: Deploying to a Maven Repo with Ivy
Date Thu, 16 Oct 2008 10:39:16 GMT
Even if you have a single jar, that can work.  To continue with you
example of "hibernate.jar" with a withEHCache and
withDistributedTransactions configuration, you could have 3 modules
generated.  One will be the hibernate-core which will be a classical
pom with an artefact (and probably the common dependencies).  The 2
others would be hibernate-withEHCache and
hibernate-withDistributedTransactions, each being pure poms, with
their specific dependencies and with a compile dependencies to

Of curse if some classes of the hibernate-core are only usefull in a
specific conf, it would be better to put those classes into a specific
artefact.  But using pure pom module, it is not required.
