Subject SourceSafe syntax error
Date Fri, 10 Sep 2004 23:35:28 GMT
Hi All,

I've been looking for an answer to this in the archive, but with no luck so far :(

Anyway, the problem is that I'm trying to get some files from a VSS repository, but I always
get the same error. Her's
what I've done so far:
1. I verified that I could do this operation using the command line. So I set the PATH and
SSDIR environment variables
and tested the following command: ss get "$/ibis dev/java" -R. It worked right away.
2. Created the following properties and target in my build file:

  <property name="vss.project.dir" location="$/ibis dev/java/"/>

  <target name="vss-get">
    <!-- Gets all the source code from the VSS repository using vssget -->
    <vssget vsspath="${vss.project.dir}"
            recursive="true"/>
  </target>

Tested and got the following result:
C:\webapps\ibis-test>ant vss-get
Buildfile: build.xml

vss-get:
   [vssget] $C:\webapps\ibis-test\$\ibis dev\java is not valid SourceSafe syntax


BUILD FAILED
C:\webapps\ibis-test\build.xml:26: Failed executing: ss Get "$C:\webapps\ibis-te
st\$\ibis dev\java"  -I-  -R      With a return code of 100

Total time: 2 seconds

Actually I tried this many times with different options, but got the same result.
3. Then I thought of a different approach so I created the following properties and target:

  <property name="vss.bin.dir"     location="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\VSS\win32"/>
  <property name="vss.server.dir"  location="S:\SHARED\IBIS\WIBIS\0003 Construction\SS"/>

  <target name="exec-get">
    <!-- Gets all the source code from the VSS repository using exec -->
    <exec executable="ss.exe" dir=".">
      <env key="PATH" path="${vss.bin.dir}"/>
      <env key="SSDIR" path="${vss.server.dir}"/>
        
      <arg value="get"/>
      <arg value="${vss.project.dir}"/>
      <arg value="-R"/>
    </exec>
  </target>

Tested and got the following result:
C:\webapps\ibis-test>ant exec-get
Buildfile: build.xml

exec-get:
     [exec] C:\webapps\ibis-test\$\ibis dev\java is not valid SourceSafe syntax
     [exec] Result: 100

BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 2 seconds

Why does Ant keep adding my current dir to the project dir? Any ideas on how to solve this
issue?

Thanks in advance,
