Subject RE: Help with Basic PVCS task in ANT.
Date Fri, 27 Jun 2003 15:03:27 GMT

Thank you so much for the reply.

I tried running the command on the shell. It errors out saying :

PVCS Version Manager (VMGUI) v6.5.00 (Build 536) for Windows NT/80x86
Copyright 1985-1999 INTERSOLV, Inc.  All rights reserved.
This command is provided for customer support purposes.  The interface

11:02:59 Jun.27.03 [Error]
The requested command was not found: "ListVersionedFiles"

Any clues ? I can see that it does not understand lvf.......though am using v6.5.

A couple of things I'd try: (I may not have the answer for you, but I work
with this task a far bit.)

1. try running the command (pcli lvf -z -aw -spc:/tabli/opper/works
"-prg:/workall/inteproj/vm/tms_17_0" /) from the same shell where you run
ant. Once you get it working there you'll know you've got it in ant.

2. Be sure that you have a path set to the bin directory where pcli is.

3. Try changing the slashes in your path to the repository. I can't
if the task actually corrects the slashes for you as you would expect.

Am trying to use the base version of pvcs task of ant but am always getting
the error(below). Can somebody help me ?

file:c:/tabli/opper/works/source/build.xml:37: Failed executing: pcli lvf
-aw -spc:/tabli/opper/works "-prg:/workall/inteproj/vm/tms_17_0" /

I have all the required permissions to execute a get on the pvcs. We do not
have any projects under tms_17_0. It is a db created using 'create project
database' option in admin of pvcs. The archives dir is under tms_17_0 and
on a mapped drive on winNT. The archives contains all the sub directories
the db. Also am hoping that this task gets all the dirs under archives

Can you pl let me know if anything is wrong here. Am not able to get
required info from the documentation.

The corresponding task is

<property name="pvcdir"  location="c:/tabli/opper/works" />

<target name="pvcsget">
  <!-- Create the build directory structure used by pvcs -->
  <mkdir dir="${pvcdir}"/>
  <pvcs repository="g:/workall/inteproj/vm/tms_17_0"
        workspace = "${pvcdir}"

Thank you very much.
