Subject RE: Environment variables for exec
Date Fri, 23 Jun 2000 18:18:20 GMT

Hi,

I have tried, following Jacques' advice :

<project name=main...
  <target name="looping" depends="init">
    <property name="var-prop" value="value1"/>
    <ant antfile="subbuild.xml" dir="$(var-prop)"/>
    <property name="var-prop" value="value2"/>
    <ant antfile="subbuild.xml" dir="$(var-prop)"/>
  </target>
</project>

But it didn't work (echos instead of ants won't give the expected values).
So I did :

        <exec dir="${OPM_CVS_DIR}" command="ant -buildfile
CustomizersSetup.xml -Dpartner=RAGeneric RAGeneric"/>
        <exec dir="${OPM_CVS_DIR}" command="ant -buildfile
CustomizersSetup.xml -Dpartner=ZBox partner"/>

This way I am able to pass the arguments I want to the ant task.

But, if this does work under Unix, it won't under Windows NT (4 + SP 6).

The error is :
Myos = Windows NT
[exec] ant

BUILD FATAL ERROR

That is Exec catches an IOException. Where can it come from ?!
