Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 52227] New: manifestclasspath makes paths relative to build dir and not jarfile
Date Tue, 22 Nov 2011 12:41:13 GMT

             Bug #: 52227
           Summary: manifestclasspath makes paths relative to build dir
                    and not jarfile
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.8.2
          Platform: PC
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Core tasks
    Classification: Unclassified

Created attachment 27974
test build file, sample jar and class

not sure if this is a windows issue.

if my build folder is d:/prog/j/anttestManifestClasspath

but the final run folder is d:/run/anttestManifestClasspath

i run ant from the build folder with a manifestclasspath task and jar task with
manifest that uses the classpath created here, the relative folders are not to
final jar file in d:/run/anttest but to my build folder.

I think its a bug as the full path to the final jar is given to
manifestclasspath task so the paths should be relative to that.

Would suggest the documentation reflect this if its as expected.

Workaround exists - call another build file from the main file and keep that
build file's base dir as the run folder

Important when the build file is old and has relative paths to it so we cant
change from where the build is started nor can we change the base dir
