Subject FW: UNC paths
Date Wed, 11 Jul 2001 20:07:23 GMT

Feel free to disregard the previous question. I was lacking on caffeine
intake, but the obvious workaround of mapping the network drive and setting
that as the destdir for javadoc is good enough for now. Since one of Ant's
best features is it's ability to allow you to work cross-platform, I can't
imagine there being a lot of desire to add UNC path support.

Thanks for the response.

I do have another question, however. I noticed that in an  earlier post you
had asked if Ant knows how to handle UNC path conventions, like a "\\" in

Did you ever get an answer on that?

I am trying to specify a UNC path for the destdir parameter in my javadoc
task, but Ant appears to just be ignoring the first slash in the UNC path
and bonking. I could write an ftp task to handle uploading the javadocs to
the remote machine, but I am just being lazy and looking for an easy way to
do it. Since cmd.exe (a.k.a. the good ol' DOS prompt window) does not
support UNC paths, it's no surprise that Ant doesn't either. Just curious...

The example has been corrected in CVS. See:
