Apache Ivy 2.3.0 / 2.4.0-rc1

A dependency manager for Java-based projects, easy to use, flexible in its setup, and integrated with the Apache Ant build tool
Apache Ivy is a tool targeting developers for managing, recording, tracking, resolving and reporting on a project's active dependencies.

Ivy improves the Ant build system by providing an automated way of resolving dependencies, the order in which they need to be loaded, from where they need to be downloaded and at what point in the build process to load them.

If you ever used a build system you realize how important dependency management really is, and why Ivy is a must-have tool for any Java developer that relies on Ant for building his projects.

  • Extremely flexible

  • Strong conflict management
