Apache IvyDE Eclipse plugin integrates Apache Ivy's dependency management into Eclipse™. It lets you manage your dependencies declared in an ivy.xml in your Java Eclipse projects, or any other kind of project which needs dependency management.

A summary of the features it provides follows:
  • Managed classpath container: automatic downloads, access to the Ivy "resolve" task from your IDE, and a feature allowing you to develop interdependent multi-module applications in one workspace.
  • Ivy XML files editor: creation wizard, html preview and completion for Ivy XML tags, attributes, and attribute values.
  • Ivy settings files editor: completion for XML tags, attributes, and attribute values.
  • Ivy console: presents every log from Ivy to assist in debugging a failing resolve.
  • Reverse Dependency Explorer: helps you work with conflicting dependencies amongst several projects.
  • Resolve and retrieve for non Java project: use Ivy within Eclipse to manage files non necessarly Java-related
Apache IvyDE can be also used with other plugins like WTP and Apache Ant.
