Subject RE: Problem with iasdeploy using ANT 1.2
Date Wed, 25 Apr 2001 10:26:04 GMT
 I had the same prob for a bit with ANT and iPlanet iAS.

What I found is that I was using mkstool kit and its ksh shell to do my ant
builds (that is I would issue 'ANT' from a ksh prompt).  MKS toolkits KSH
needed "iasdeploy.bat" as the executable name (in the ant build.xml) rather
that just plain old "iasdeploy".  Running the same ANT build.xml under a
vanilla cmdprompt  (WinNT 4ws sp6) seemed to work fine (with either
'iasdeploy' or 'iasdeploy.bat'.  Other non CMD shells (eg. cygwin) might
have the same problem.

Ultimately, I made a property (eg. dplcmd) and used that as the executable
in the exec task.  We use props files here to allow for local workstation
variations, and the main build.xml has the default value of 'iasdeploy' for
this property.  Developers can then override the property in their private
props file to call 'iasdeploy.bat' if needed.

Hope this helps,

The path does contain the deployment tool and the same
command works when executed from the cmd shell, that
is the deployment goes thru.
