Subject Maven and Ant
Date Thu, 16 Oct 2003 21:16:02 GMT
Hi Guys,

I've been using Ant for a lot of build related stuff. Now I hear of this
other tool called Maven. Is there any place I could find the differences
between maven and ant and which is better in what case.

Or if you guys have any views abt that.

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"

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

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/**" />
