Subject RE: CVS.exe for Ant
Date Thu, 24 Jul 2003 22:03:42 GMT
One way that you could do it is to write a custom task that does an
exec() of Ant with the correct path.

But then everybody would have to have the CVS.exe in the same place on
their machine so I suppose you're back to square one.

You could give them a modified ant.bat that set the path appropriately
before calling Ant?

Subject: CVS.exe for Ant

This list may not be the best place to ask this CVS specific question.
But here it is.

To perform all the ant CVS tasks we are required to have cvs.exe (CVS
Client) in our System Path Environment Variable.

Does anyone know any other way around this. I mean can we do something
in Ant Script to either set the System Path before it carries out the
CVS tasks or specify some other kind or path/variable that enables the
cvs.exe to be found in order to run the CVS tasks.

I basically want to avoid making everybody in the department to go thru
the procedure of adding environment variables as I would already be
telling them to upgrade the Ant in their IDE .
