Subject Re: passing paramter from ANT to shell script doesn't seems to work for me; Help !!!
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2003 18:56:44 GMT
As you said, i did the exact same thing.......
 
Yes, it is not working for me even with this simple example.
 
 
 
 
build.xml file:
---------------------------------------------
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1"?>
<project name="dev" default="all" basedir=".">
    <property name="Deploy.scripts.folder" value= "/export/home/ext5sxs/scripts" />

    <target name="shaileshtest">
        <echo message="This is the TESTNET box"/>
        <exec dir="${Deploy.scripts.folder}" executable="${Deploy.scripts.folder}/myshellS
cript.sh" />
<env key="SHAILESH" value="how are you????"/>

    </target>
    <target name="all" depends="shaileshtest" />
</project>
 
----------------------------
 
 
 
 
myshellScript.sh
 
------------------
echo "Here is what the path====" $PATH
echo "My env variable====" $SHAILESH
--------------
 
 
This is the same EXCEPTION:
--------------------------
ext5sxs@reliant2 bin> ant all
Buildfile: build.xml
shaileshtest:
     [echo] This is the TESTNET box
     [exec] Here is what the path==== /opt/bea/weblogic81/server/bin:/opt/bea/jdk141_03/jre/bin:/opt/bea/jdk141_03/bin:/opt/bea/weblogic81/server/bin:/opt/bea/jdk141_03/jre/bin:/opt/bea/jdk141_03/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/opt/bea/weblogic81/server/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/openwin/bin:/usr/ucb:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/local/bin
     [exec] My env variable====
BUILD FAILED
file:/export/home/ext5sxs/bin/build.xml:10: Could not create task or type of type: env.
Ant could not find the task or a class this task relies upon.
This is common and has a number of causes; the usual 
solutions are to read the manual pages then download and
install needed JAR files, or fix the build file: 
 - You have misspelt 'env'.
   Fix: check your spelling.
 - The task needs an external JAR file to execute
   and this is not found at the right place in the classpath.
   Fix: check the documentation for dependencies.
   Fix: declare the task.
 - The task is an Ant optional task and optional.jar is absent
   Fix: look for optional.jar in ANT_HOME/lib, download if needed
 - The task was not built into optional.jar as dependent
   libraries were not found at build time.
   Fix: look in the JAR to verify, then rebuild with the needed
   libraries, or download a release version from apache.org
 - The build file was written for a later version of Ant
   Fix: upgrade to at least the latest release version of Ant
 - The task is not an Ant core or optional task 
   and needs to be declared using <taskdef>.
Remember that for JAR files to be visible to Ant tasks implemented
in ANT_HOME/lib, the files must be in the same directory or on the
classpath
Please neither file bug reports on this problem, nor email the
Ant mailing lists, until all of these causes have been explored,
as this is not an Ant bug.

Now what shall i do ??????????????????

You are saying that you nested env elements within the exec task and you 
get this error.

I would recommend that you try to first use a simple script that just 
echo an environment variable.

Run a target that uses this script.

Then use ant to pass the single environment variable to the script and 
try it again.

Sometimes it is better to take a step back before jumping ahead.
