Subject RE: ANT Inside IBM WebSphere Application Developer
Date Tue, 08 Apr 2003 09:36:16 GMT
Hi there!

	Thanks for the reply!
	What I did was download the latest ANT which contains 4 jars:
ant.jar, optional.jar, xercesImpl.jar and xml-apis.jar (the last two are
actually a distribution of Xerces 2 for Java). So, I've removed (actually
backed them up on another station -- something told me that it wouldn't work
straight away and I might need to revert back to the previous version :D)
the old jars from org.eclipse.ant.core (in the plugins directory) and copied
over the new jars. Then modified the plugin.xml to include the new jars and
restarted the WSAD -- and (suprise!) I didn't get the "Run Ant..." menu item
on the xml files. So I went back and double-checked the old config and
realised that I still needed antsupport.jar to enabled Ant in WSAD. So I've
copied this jar together with the new jars in the org.eclipse.ant.core
directory, modified the plugin.xml file and restarted WSAD -- and great! the
"Run Ant..." item appeared again... However, clicking it would produce the
"XML parser factory has not been configured correctly. Provider
org.apache.xerces.jaxp.SAXParserFactoryImpl not found." error... Looking
through the manifest files, I've realised that some jars relied on xalan.jar
as well, so I've copied that one over, but I've also found some dependencies
of jars that I couldn't find anywhere on apache's website : jaxp.jar -- for
example... I don't think they are really needed, so I didn't worry about it
(as I can run ant from the command line outside WSAD without these jars),
however as it is now Ant wouldn't run any further -- and the trouble is
reverting back to the old ant version makes some of my makefiles useless as
I get the ole' "Attribute XXX not supported..." :(
	If you have managed to make this work, could you please bring a bit
of light into it -- perhaps we could then notify Barry on the actual actions
needed to make it work -- as I can imagine probably quite a few other people
being faced with this challenge at some point, and they probably had to give
it up as my "researches" on the web into this only produced Barry's article
and this mailing list...

I upgraded my ant in WSAD 4.03 to the latest Ant build, without any other
problems. If I remember it was just modifying plugin.xml, and renaming jars.
Unfortunately I've deleted the stuff of this pc, can check when I get into
work. What did u change in order to upgrade? I remember their being
anomalies in Barry Searles' instructions.
