Defines a list of conflicts managers usable in Ivy. Each conflict manager is identified by its name, given as an attribute.
The child tag used for the conflict manager must be equal to a name of a conflict manager type (either built-in or added with the typedef tag).
Here is a list of built-in conflicts managers (which do not require anything in the configuration file):
- all this conflicts manager resolve conflicts by selecting all revisions. Also called the NoConflictManager, it doesn't evict any modules.
- latest-time this conflict manager selects only the 'latest' revision, latest being defined as the latest in time. Note that latest in time is costly to compute, so prefer latest-revision if you can.
- latest-revision this conflict manager selects only the 'latest' revision, latest being defined by a string comparison of revisions.
- latest-compatible this conflict manager selects the latest version in the conflicts which can result in a compatible set of dependencies. This means that in the end, this conflict manager does not allow any conflicts (similar to the strict conflict manager), except that it follows a best effort strategy to try to find a set of compatible modules (according to the version constraints)
- strict this conflict manager throws an exception (i.e. causes a build failure) whenever a conflict is found.
Indeed direct dependencies can declare a force attribute (see dependency), which indicates that the revision given in the direct dependency should be preferred over indirect dependencies.
Here is a list of conflict manager types available, which can be used to define your own custom conflict managers:
- latest-cm The latest conflict manager uses a latest strategy to select the latest revision among several ones. Both latest-time and latest-revision conflict managers are based on this conflict manager type. It takes 'latest' as attribute to define which latest strategy should be used. Example:
<latest-cm name="mylatest-conflict-manager" latest="my-latest-strategy"/>
<compatible-cm name="my-latest-compatible-conflict-manager" latest="my-latest-strategy"/>
