Subject RE: Problem with basedir
Date Mon, 19 Aug 2002 20:54:39 GMT
'basedir' of <project> is overwhelmingly a relative path, very often just
".", and sometimes "..". Using a full pathname is *not* recommended. And
this indeed prevent anyone to build from a different working directory than
the one you hard-coded. --DD

Subject: Problem with basedir

Hi all - I have the following at the start of an ant XML file:

<project name="DaonSignRelease" default="BuildAll"
basedir="F:\Build\DaonSign\">

	<target name="Init">
		<!-- set global properties for this build -->
		<property name="baseDirectory" value="${basedir}"/>
		<property name="cvs.root"
value=":ntserver:daon-config-a:E:/cvs"/>
		<property name="baseDirectoryEngine"
value="F:\Build\DaonEngine\"/>
	</target>

But I want to specify basedir and baseDirectoryEngine on the cmd file that
kicks off ant.
I change the above to 

<project name="DaonSignRelease" default="BuildAll">

	<target name="Init">
		<!-- set global properties for this build -->
		<property name="baseDirectory" value="${basedir}"/>
		<property name="cvs.root"
value=":ntserver:daon-config-a:E:/cvs"/>
	</target>

and in my Command file I have

ant test.xml -Dbasedir=D:\Build -DbaseDirectoryEngine=F:\Build\Engine

But when I run my script now I always get:

BUILD FAILED
file:F:/Build/DaonSign/2.0.0.8/build/scripts/build.DaonSign-Release.xml:153:
Problems creating a recorder entry

The line at 153 is:
	        <record name="${reportLocation}\ReleaseLog.txt"
action="start" />

and reportLocation does exist

Any ideas / help would be great !!
