- Ant: In this case, the dependencies gets built into the lib folder of the project
- IvyDE: In this case, the dependencies get built into the cache folder and Eclipse uses the cache folder to build the code. On Windows, the cache folder can be found at C:\Users\<username>\.ivy2\local\pentaho on your machine. The advantage of using IvyDE to build the dependencies is that if there are multiple projects using these jar files, there is only one physical copy of jar file thereby saving space on hard disk.
