Subject RE: problem executing subproject with ant task

Salut ;-)

Who defines the classpath and additional.path properties, and how?

If it's the master build, you need to define 'inheritAll' and possibly also
'inheritRefs' (new to Ant 1.5) so the sub-build can see the properties.

But I'm surprised you don't need these in the classpath to compile
though!?!? In any case, one usually defines a <path id="cp"/> somewhere, and
reference it in both <javac> and <java> using <classpath refid="cp"/>.

Hope this helps, and re-post with more info if it's not the problem. --DD

Subject: problem executing subproject with ant task

Hi All,
using ant since 2 days, i have problem executing subproject with ant
Here is my main build file :
    <target name="compile">
        <ant dir="${MF_OPER}" target="compile" />
    <target name="execute" depends="compile">
        <ant dir="${MF_OPER}" target="execute"/>

and the subproject build file :
<target name="compile" depends="clean">
    <javac srcdir="${src}" destdir="${build}" deprecation="true" />
  <!-- execution du programme -->
  <target name="execute" depends="compile">
    <java classname="${prog}" fork="true">
      <arg value="${filesToRead}" />
         <pathelement location="${build}"/>
         <pathelement path="${classpath}"/>
         <pathelement path="${additional.path}"/>

    Here 's what i got in return :
            [java] Java Result : 255

    Note that "compile" works fine, and if i execute the subproject
independently, it works to.
    Can anyone help?
