Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-829) Add new "packager" resolver to Ivy
Date Fri, 11 Jul 2008 20:08:31 GMT


Archie Cobbs commented on IVY-829:

I still believe the original code is the right way to go. If {{Runtime.exec()}} doesn't work
properly on your machine, then that seems like a configuration problem (perhaps the Windows
equivalent of {{$PATH}} needs to be set to include ant?). Surely lots of other programs in
the world use {{Runtime.exec()}} and they're not all broken on Windows too, are they?

An easy way to help Windows users if this is indeed merely a {{$PATH}} problem would be to
add a new configuration attribute on the packager resolver that sets the absolute pathname
to the ant binary. So if normal Windows {{$PATH}} resolution doesn't work, you can set the
path explicitly.

In any case, I don't understand the comments about URLs or {{cmd.exe}}, or what an {{UnknownHostException}}
has to do with anything. All we are trying to do is execute a local program with some command
line arguments. 

On the other hand, I abhor^H^H^H^Hnever use Windows so I'm not able to offer much insight
into how things work on that illustrious platform.
