I'm trying to publish a plain old text file to local maven repository using Ivy. I receive an "ivy file not found in cache" and "please resolve dependencies before publishing" error and it appears as if I am expected to resolve before publishing. I don't need to resolve. I already have my text file and just need to put it in local maven repository .m2. Can I do this with Ivy?
I've been all over the web and ivy home pages trying to find this. I am new to Ivy and it could just be I don't understand the process well enough. Not sure if this is the way to go but I read in one site someone was trying to build a test jar filled with files and then they would somehow publish this and resolve was used in this case but the details were sketchy and I didn't really understand how to resolve in this case.
