Display a dependency tree on the console.

This is a post resolve task, with all the behaviour and attributes common to all post resolve tasks.

Please prefer the use of retrieve + standard Ant path creation, which make your build more independent from Ivy (once artifacts are properly retrieved, Ivy is not required any more).


Attribute Description Required


specify if evicted modules should be printed

No. Defaults to false


a comma separated list of the configurations to take in consideration in the dependency tree

No. Defaults to the configurations resolved by the last resolve call, or * if no resolve was explicitly called


true to halt the build on Ivy failure, false to continue

No. Defaults to true


true to force Ivy files validation against ivy.xsd, false to force no validation

No. Defaults to default Ivy value (as configured in settings)


A reference to Ivy settings that must be used by this task (since 2.0)

No, defaults to ivy.instance.


Overwrite the value of the property if it already exist (since 2.0). Before 2.0, the properties were always overwritten.

No, false by default.


Suppose we have two dependencies one called mydep in revision 2.0 and one called myotherdependency in revision 2.2. mydep has a transitive dependency on mytransitivedependency in revision 2.2.



will display the following tree in the console:

Dependency tree for foobar
+- org#mydep;2.0
   \- org#mytransitivedependency;2.2
\- org#myotherdependency;2.2");
