Consume Central with Apache Ivy (and Apache Ant)⚓︎

Apache Ivy has a built-in resolver for the Central Repository that can be configured in ivysettings.xml and accesses the repository via HTTP.

<ivysettings>
  <settings defaultResolver="chain"/>
  <resolvers>
    <chain name="chain">
      <ibiblio name="central" m2compatible="true"/>
    </chain>
  </resolvers>
</ivysettings>

To access the Central Repository with Ivy via HTTPS you can add the URL to the resolver definition in the root attribute.

<ivysettings>
  <settings defaultResolver="chain" />
  <resolvers>
    <chain name="chain">
      <ibiblio name="securedcentral" m2compatible="true" root="https://repo1.maven.org/maven2" />
    </chain>
  </resolvers>
</ivysettings>
