Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45499] DirectoryScanner infinitely recurses on symlinks to parent directories
Date Fri, 17 Oct 2008 14:24:24 GMT

--- Comment #15 from Stefan Bodewig <>  2008-10-17 07:24:23 PST ---
you see the different JDKs because one of your symlinks is pointing to a parent
directory of all your JDKs, namely the one that holds the Versions directory
which again makes Ant traverse into all your JDKs.

I guess it is not so much a problem of an infinite loop but more one of getting
a <path> that is incredibly big in the end and eating all your memory.

Could you perform a run with MAX_LEVELS set to 1 and run it with -debug so I
stand a chance of seeing which DirectoryScanner is going into that path and

The defintion of the <javac> task of your buildfile would help as well.
