Subject Re: Deploying to a Maven Repo with Ivy
Date Wed, 15 Oct 2008 07:50:52 GMT
Concerning the mapping, did you have thought to map one ivy module to
multiple maven poms.  I think that if you want to keep the same
richness, when you have an ivy file with multiple "functional"
configurations, you should generate multiple poms, one for each
"functional" configuration that you have.  I think it is the only way
to keep an explicit name for those configurations.
Did you already considered such aproach?
