Subject Error with the foreach task
Date Mon, 02 Jul 2001 18:47:32 GMT
This is probably something obvious that I am missing.  But I have defined
the following targets:

<taskdef name="foreach"
classname="org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.ForeachTask"/>
<target name="build_experimental" depends="init, prepare_dirs">
  <foreach target="build_experimental_dir" type="dir">
    <param name="src.subdir">
      <fileset dir="${build.java}" includes="*"/>
    </param>
  </foreach>
</target>

<target name="build_experimental_dir">
  <javac srcdir="${build.java}"
         destdir="${build.classes}"
         includes="${src.subdir}/*.java"
         classpath="${CLASSPATH}">
    <patternset excludesfile="${build.java}/build_excludes" />
  </javac>
</target>

Took me a while to figure out I needed to add the <taskdef>.  But after
adding that, I still get the following error:

build_experimental:

BUILD FAILED

        at org.apache.tools.ant.Main.main(Main.java:149)

It is unclear to me what is causing the null pointer exception.  Is there
something I can turn on in ant that will help me debug this?  Does anyone
see an obvious problem with the task definitions or the way I am using
<foreach> that I am missing?

Thanks!
