Subject RE: Nightly Ant scripts
Date Mon, 13 Jan 2003 18:11:41 GMT
I'm not sure if this is the answer to your question, or not.  But, I'm having no problems running
my scripts from the scheduled tasks window.  (control panel -> Scheduled Tasks), under

I kick off a batch file, that in turn runs ANT.  I did have difficulty, with the environment
settings, until I set them all for the system, as opposed to specific users.

Is there way no way I can call an ANT script from a DOS batch at a specified time on a Windows

What operating system?  Show the entire batch file, and explain how you are
kicking it off.  Error 2 is usually "file not found".

Subject: Nightly Ant scripts


I'm using a DOS batch file to run an ant build script, when I run the build
script on its own on the command line it works fine but when I run it via
the batch file I get:
CreateProcess: ${env.VSS_HOME}\ss Get
$/Bs2/WebBook/src -GLC:\TEST_NIGHTLY\src -I- -R -VL0113a001. 
-W -Yguest, error=2

Total time: 4 seconds

This is the script I'm using:
SET JAVA_HOME=C:\j2sdk1.4.1
ant -buildfile retAndBld_WebBook.xml 1> c:\out.txt 2> c:\err.txt

All suggestions welcome as to how to resolve this problem.

These tools are great for such things.  Eric Hatcher's book, "Java
Development With ANT" (, has a nice chapter
on continuous integration, focusing on these three tools.  He gives a good
basic comparison of the three that I agree with.  I recommend that you get
this book highly - for this, and for the best practices (Integrating SCM
with build process and more) help you are looking for in the other email :)
There are many many excellent recommendations throughout.

IMHO: Based on a very basic look at the three, the most immediately-obvious
difference is getting the tool set up- Anthill is the easiest to get
running and to get projects started.  Other than this and look and feel,
each has its own pros and cons, as all seem to be great tools- so a look
into the book above and a trial of each might be helpful.
