Reload settings will not try to re-read ivysettings.xml file after failure to find file at start-up (possibly due to Eclipse variable substitution)

      In running through several outage cases in our group's use of Ivy, I ran into an interesting start-up case.

      Right now our common ivysettings.xml file is housed on a file share. If we have a network outage before the user starts up Eclipse, IvyDE will of course give an error. However, when the file share becomes accessible again a "Reload settings" from the ivy.xml container or a "Resolve" will still fail. I have also tested the much simpler case of simply renaming the ivysettings.xml file before starting Eclipse to simulate a file share disruption, which also results in the same issue.

      Have Eclipse setup with at least one project using Ivy/IvyDE and referencing an ivysettings.xml file on a file system. (i.e. file:/path/to/ivysettings.xml)

      Close Eclipse

      Rename the ivysettings.xml file to something else

      Launch Eclipse (now without access to the ivysettings.xml) and we get the error:
      Error while resolving the ivy instance for ivy.xml in 'MyIvyProject':
      Unrecognized variables in the Ivy settings file ${workspace_loc:MyIvyProject/P:/Ivy/common/ivysettings.xml}

      Make note that it's considering the absolute file path a VARIABLE for some reason.

      Rename the file back to ivysettings.xml

      Attempt a resolve, reload, refresh, etc., all result in the same error:
      Error while resolving the ivy instance for ivy.xml in 'MyIvyProject':
      Unrecognized variables in the Ivy settings file ${workspace_loc:MyIvyProject/P:/Ivy/common/ivysettings.xml}

      Here is the stack trace:

      • Why is the file URL changing to a variable substitution? I used the "File System" button to select the file in the Classpath Container settings window.
      • This issue DOESN'T occur if during an Eclipse session you lose access to the file, attempt to reload settings (fail), restore the file, and attempt to reload again.


      • Close Eclipse, restore ivysettings.xml file, start Eclipse
      • Go back in the Classpath Container settings window and press OK
