What i want to achieve:
get intellij working happily within the existing tool chain I have at my place of work
svn - source only
Custom build tool based on ant - this tool generates project files using a build.xml (with custom extensions) it will generate all the necessary files and the config files for an eclipse project.
I can use these generated projects to create idea modules, that works fine
dependencies - if a dependency version changes if i run the build tool it will update the jar files in the lib directory, in eclipse refreshing the project will fix this problem and it will change the list of dependecies.
Is there a way I can configure idea to look in this directory dynamically rather than loading a dependency statically.
Could i specify a dependency prefix? e.g dependent-jar*.jar would map to dependent-jar-5.jar
