Subject [jira] Commented: (IVY-232) Incorrect directory path resolve when running from a different directory
Date Thu, 07 Aug 2008 07:33:44 GMT


Xavier Hanin commented on IVY-232:

So Adrian, if you are so unhappy, provide a patch to fix this. When you say that using absolute
paths is unacceptable for you, you don't explain why. All you need is add "${basedir}/" at
the beginning of all the paths. I believe that if this isn't fixed yet, it's because everybody
realized that it was faster to do this than to implement the fix and provide a patch.

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

>             Fix For: 2.0-RC1
> 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.
