resources

(since 2.3) (Ant 1.7 required) ivy:resources is an Ant resource collection, containing files found by an Ivy resolve, which then can be used with any task working with resources like copy or import.

This datatype shares the same attributes, child elements and behaviour of a post resolve task. It is not expected to be used as an Ant task though, only as a resource collection.

Examples

<ivy:resources file="path/to/ivy.xml"/>

Build a resource collection of every artifacts of all dependencies declared in path/to/ivy.xml file.


<ivy:resources file="path/to/ivy.xml" transitive="false"/>

Same as above, but with transitive dependencies disabled.


<ivy:resources file="path/to/ivy.xml" conf="default, test"/>
