ivysettings.xmlfile to refer to that location, but that's not particularly scalable. And for open source projects, it just doesn't work at all.
Yeah, we've got this Ivy thing so that it automatically identifies all the dependencies and downloads them so you don't have to do anything but have Ant installed. Except for the Java stuff, which you have to manually download and put into these particular locations, and that's a 20 minute task minimum.Kinda takes the shine off the whole experience, doesn't it? Now given that everybody seems to know that you can handle licensing restrictions in different ways (by a disclaimer in each file and a copy of the license included), why does Sun still live in the past? Why do they require a clickthrough for something that is essentially just an explicit disclaimer of warranties and liability? Why can I download Eclipse or NetBeans without a clickthrough but not the JMS 1.1 API interface files? Man, I hope the EU finally lets Oracle buy Sun and put this type of stupidity out of its misery.
