settings

Tag: settings

Configures some important Ivy info: default resolver, latest strategy, conflict manager and some others.

The default resolver is used whenever nothing else is configured in the modules section of the settings file. It should give the name of a dependency resolver defined in the resolvers section of the settings file.

The default latest strategy and conflict manager can also be configured here.

validate indicates if Ivy files should generally be validated against the Ivy XSD or not. This setting is only a default value, and can be overridden:

  1. in Ant tasks

  2. in resolvers

So if there is a setting in the resolver, it always wins against all other settings.
