Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-608) Add support for importing environment variables
Date Mon, 24 Sep 2007 12:51:50 GMT


Xavier Hanin commented on IVY-608:

Reusing the code from Ant property task will bring quite a lot of code (which actually executes
an OS specific command), which we will have to maintain later. So I'm in favor of using Jing
solution, with a good documentation explaining that the feature is available for java5+ only.

About documentation, Jing could you provide a patch for the documentation too?

About the implementation, I think we should extract the code dealing with environment loading
in a separate class, and maybe even put it in a separate source directory, so that we could
still compile the core with jdk 1.4, and compile this class only with jdk 1.5+. Otherwise
we may easily introduce code relying on jdk5+ without noticing it.

> Ant supports importing environment variables into properties via the <properties environment="env"
/> task.  If an ivysettings.xml relies on an environment variable, the lack of support
for this feature in Ivy makes it difficult to reuse the same ivysettings.xml in a non-Ant
environment, such as in IvyDE.  I'm submitting a patch to add the support for JDK 1.5+. This
implementation will throw an exception when running in lesser JVMs.
