Subject RE: javadoc task failure
Date Wed, 15 Oct 2003 19:58:09 GMT
Kinda tough to be specific without seeing the buil.xml 
Perhaps the addition of a core <available> task within the target that is using <for-each>
to test the source directory
and conditionally call javadoc based on the resulting property value .

<available file="${matt-src-dir-folder}" type="dir" property="matt-src-dir-present"/>

Subject: javadoc task failure

Hi Everybody,

I would appreciate a little help with the javadoc task. Here is what I am using. I'm running
the task to generate docs
for several projects. The packages : "com.kod.*" are located under the "source"  directory
in each project folder. But
when the task encounters a project which doesn't has an "source" folder under it, it crashes
and says : "BUILD FAILED
file:/home/javadoc/builddocs.xml:74: No source files and no packages have been specified.

I saw someone had similar problem but can't figure how what to do from those messages.

I am using the ant-contrib <for-each> task to loop thru the projects and I need the
javadoc task to just skip the
project that it doesn't find an "source" folder in. Here is my task.

<javadoc packagenames="com.kod.*"
           windowtitle="${}" failonerror="False"> <fileset dir="${}"
defaultexcludes="yes" >
      <include name="**/source/**" />
