Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-232) Incorrect directory path resolve when running from a different directory
Date Thu, 07 Aug 2008 08:09:44 GMT


Xavier Hanin commented on IVY-232:

Fixing this is not complex, it's only time consuming to go through all the code to make sure
we don't forget any single case. And when I talk about absolute paths, I'm actually talking
about paths relative to a directory which has an absolute path, like path relative to basedir
or settings dir. For a first reference to this "trick", see [this comment|]

>             Project: Ivy
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Ant
>    Affects Versions: 1.3-RC2
>         Environment: Windows 2000 (probably Unix also. Didn't check that)

> Suppose you have two projects in two directories: 
> /projA
> /projB
> Each one of them have its own build.xml.
> When you run Ant on /projA/build.xml from /projA evrything is ok.
> When you run from "/projB" "ant -f ..\projA\build.xml" relative pathes are based on "projB"
by Ivy, whereas the correct way (as Ant and Maven works) is to use "projA" as the base directory
(assuming "/projA/build.xml" has "basedir" attribute: ".")
> In other words, Ivy should take the base directory as specified in the "build.xml" file
in "project" tag in "basedir" attribute, and calculate it based on the location of the build.xml
file; not based on the "current" directory where Ant was invoced from.
