Subject RE: FW: Can't find the files
Date Fri, 06 Apr 2001 16:18:23 GMT
Just for trying, since my JDKs live in D drive in my machine, I wrote

<property name="$Java122Classes" value="d:/jdk1.2.2/jre/lib/rt.jar" />
<property name="Java118Classes" value="d:/jdk1.1.8/lib/" />

in my "" file. After deleting

<property name= " Java122Classes" value="/jdk122/jre/lib/rt.jar" />
<property name= " Java118Classes" value="/jdk118/jre/lib/" />

lines from build.xml file, I wrote 

<property file="" /> on the top of build.xml file. 

So it's suppose to go and find files and work correctly right? but it's not
working and I don't know what I am doing wrong here :(

You would read in a properties file called using the file
attribute, not the name attribute:

  <property file=""/>

You also need to set the "jdk122root" and "jdk118root" properties to the
appropriate path. For example, if the JDK jars on your machine live in,
say, d:/java/tools, then you need to get the "jdk122root" and "jdk118root"
properties set to that before you run 'ant'. You can do that in a number
of different ways, and the way you choose depends on how you've designed
your build process. For now, just to get things working so you can at
least get past this hump, try just defining it on the 'ant' command line:

C:\> ant -Djdk122root=d:/java/tools -Djdk118root=d:/java/tools

substituting "d:/java/tools" for the actual path of where your two JDKs
live on your machine.
