In order to get Apache Ivy working from the command-line on OS X, I did the following:
(Get the current versions of Ant and Ivy)
(or copy the folder to /usr/local and create a symlink to ant)
(For the sake of simplicity, I'm just copying the ivy jar into Ant's lib folder):
(Set the home for the current session - this should be added to bashrc in order for it to work permanently)
(You should see something like)
Apache Ant version 1.7.1 compiled on June 27 2008
If so, you can go into one of the ivy example folders:
If this has worked, you should see:
[java] standard message : hello ivy !
[java] capitalized by org.apache.commons.lang.WordUtils : Hello Ivy !
If you want to use ivy in Eclipse, all you should need to do is make sure the jar is in the buildpath.
I found this guide pretty useful for installing Ant in OS X:
