Subject RE: More issues with Ant and Starteam
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2001 15:07:16 GMT
The Star Team Task comes with Ant and was written by several people at a
company called paytec.  I have tried to reach them with no luck.  I have two
issues with the current Star Team Check Out task.  1) It takes the last
element of the default path for the project and puts it in the checkout
path.  2) I get an error trying to run touch for every file that is checked
out.  The file is checked out properly, but I really don't want "Normal
Errors" in my build.
As a result of these issues and the fact that I am at a loss as to how to
solve at least the second one.  I have decided to stop using the Star Team
Task.  Hence my question about funning the command line interface.

Hi Patrick,
        I do not have any answer to your questions but I have a few
        We are also using Starteam here and I managed last week to get ant
accepted as the standart way to precompile, compile and deploy our
application(in java).  I did not know there was a Starteam task... did you
write it yourself?   Can you point me to a reference on this?
        As for your problem with double quotes, did you try using single
quotes like this :
<arg line=' co -p
" -fs'/>

Subject: More issues with Ant and Starteam

Since I was unable to figure out the touch issue with the starteam task, I
have decided to abandon the task in favor of the command line interface.
Ant is complaining about the exec task below.

        <exec executable="stcmd" dir="${build.basedir}"> 
          <arg line=" co -p
" -fs"/>


The error I get dose not make much sense: 

        C:\weblogic\CoventryDevelopment\build.xml:90: Whitespace required
before attributes. 

I have determined that the issue is the quotes within the command line.  I
have tried replacing the \" with the &quot; macro, but I got "Reference to
undefined entity".  I even tried using &quote; just in case.  I am wondering
if anyone has an example of a command line that has embedded quotes in it?
I am using ANT 1.3 on Win2K.
