Description i30817 2012-08-11 14:57:23 UTC
Product Version = NetBeans IDE 7.2 (Build 201207171143)
Operating System = Linux version 3.2.0-29-generic running on amd64
Java; VM; Vendor = 1.7.0_03
Runtime = OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM 22.0-b10

I want to populate the libraries dir with ivy as described in
the code there suggests using -pre-compile and -pre-compile single hooks to call the ivy:retrieve task.
However, if your project depends on other projects in the class path, you probably want to call that once. My clumsy solution was to put in all dependencies on the ivy.xml of the parent project and call that on -pre-init, which works because the dependencies are populated before the other projects are built.

However, this has the problem of being called for all ant targets. In particular it is also called for ant clean, which is a problem for me since i am using debuild -S (which calls ant clean with fakeroot). As it is using fakeroot, ivy user.home changes to /root and retrieve fails since /root is not writable (by fakeroot). The solution is obviously not to call ivy:retrieve when calling the clean target, but that requires another target then pre-init. Something like a -pre-deps-jar

I added a '-pre-deps-jar-init' hook to build-impl.xml
seems to work ok (not called on clean), should really be a default.
