Subject RE: Execute another bat file.
Date Fri, 27 Apr 2001 19:08:36 GMT


I figured out how to make it work. I was having the same as J2EE user.  I
used Simon's example:

*** I used compile as the default, but I required <target compile> to
depend on <target init>.

It worked wonderfully. Thanks Simon!!!

<project name="MyProject" default="compile" basedir=".">
<target name="init">
<tstamp/>
<echo message="Begining execution of the bat file"/>
<exec executable="d:\chris\setEnv.bat">
</exec>
</target>
<target name="compile" depends="init">
<javac srcdir="d:\chris\src" destdir="d:\chris\classes">
</javac>
</target>
</project>

J2EE user

The fact that your classpath may not be set is not necessarily indicative
of
the fact your bat file did not execute.

I can't say what happens inside ant, but from an NT point of view, if the
execution of the bat file was inside another process then you will not see
the values set when the process terminates.

For this test c:\bea\env.bat contains the following code:
@echo off
echo hello
set testvalue=test
echo %testvalue%

CASE I - running the bat in another process
------
C:\>cmd /c c:\bea\env.bat
hello
test

C:\>echo %testvalue%
%testvalue%

CASE II - running the bat in the same process
-------
C:\>c:\bea\env.bat
hello
test

C:\>echo %testvalue%
test

And .. I wonder if this is what you're seeing .. certainly when I run the
same batch file using your build script in ant I get the following results:

C:\>ant -buildfile c:\temp\build.xml
Buildfile: c:\temp\build.xml

init:
     [echo] Begining execution of the bat file
     [exec] hello
     [exec] test

BUILD SUCCESSFUL

Total time: 0 seconds
C:\>echo %testfile%
%testfile%

Try putting some echo statements in your batch file and see if these are
printed when you run.

Simon:
Even my build was successful. But it does not seem to execute the bat file.

env.bat file attempts to set the classpath, but after ant completes the
excution, the classpath is still not set.
Thanks
