Subject Enhancing eclipse plugins for Ivy and Ant
Date Fri, 27 Mar 2009 10:53:02 GMT
Hello All,

We are trying to build an eclipse plugin for EasyAnt (a new build system
based on Ant and Ivy).

An EasyAnt project is entirely based on:
1. Ant scripts.
2. Ivy spec files.

Thus, meaning that a sensible approach for us to follow may be to build on
top of existing Ant and IvyDE plugins for Eclipse.

At a more detailed level, for us, it would mean:
1. Need for addition of tags/attributes to standard ant scripts.
2. Need for Addition of tags/attributes to standard ivy files.

Can someone advise on:
1. Feasibility of such approach, i.e. to enhance this functionality, and
create a separate plugin - from both ant and ivy plugins perspective.
2. Where I can find sources for both these.
3. Any resources/documentation on these plugins.

I believe my mail concerns 2 different projects. It will be great if both
teams could give some perspective on this.

I know this is the dev mailing list for IvyDE but, am not sure about Ant. If
this is not the correct place for ant, does someone know where I should be
writing for the Ant plugin?
