Subject [Ivy] How to add a new option to ivy settings
Date Thu, 29 May 2008 02:30:15 GMT

    I am doing some testing with Ivy and have implemented a small
modification, to allow the downloaded resource to have the same date
timestamp as the file in remote repo. It is a requirement from the customer.

    At src, File dest,
CopyProgressListener l) 
    I added 


    How is it possible to add an attribute "timestamp" to the "dependencies"
xml tag ? See below, a sample:

<ivy-module version="2.0">
    <info organisation="" module="hello-ivy"/>
    <dependencies timestamp="remote">
      <dependency org="commons-lang" name="commons-lang" rev="2.0"/>
      <dependency org="commons-cli" name="commons-cli" rev="1.0"/>
      <dependency org="skaringa" name="skaringa" rev="r1p8"/>

    It can have 2 values "remote" or "current", whereas "remote" set the
last modified attribute, as the remote file is. The "current" means the
current Ivy behavior.

    How can I read the timestamp value, at BasicURLHandler class ?

    This is the thread, with more explanation about this requested behavior

    I plan to submit it as an enhancement to the Ivy issue tracking.
