What is Apache Ivy?
Apache Ivy is a tool for managing (recording, tracking, resolving and reporting) project dependencies. It is characterized by the following:
flexibility and configurability
Apache Ivy is essentially process agnostic and is not tied to any methodology or structure. Instead it provides the necessary flexibility and configurability to be adapted to a broad range of dependency management and build processes.
tight integration with Apache Ant
While available as a standalone tool, Apache Ivy works particularly well with Apache Ant providing a number of powerful Ant tasks ranging from dependency resolution to dependency reporting and publication.
