Subject Possible Ant 1.6.1 bug when Javadoc task is used in conjunction with Cruise Control 2.1.6.
Date Fri, 19 Nov 2004 16:30:07 GMT
Hi there, 

I've configured Cruise Control 2.1.6 to check out multiple projects
from CVS for the purposes of executing the unit tests associated with
each project, and then generating JavaDoc. 

Cruise Control 2.1.6 will quite happily check out the projects and
successfully run their unit tests. However, if the Ant 1.6.1 build
script associated with a monitored project specifies a Javadoc target
that includes Ant 1.6+ attributes ("breakiterator", for example), then
Cruise Control fails with the following error message:

"Javadoc task does not support the "breakiterator" attribute".

I understand the above error message to be a standard error message
fired by Ant 1.5 and below when an Ant 1.6+ attribute is specified.
However, there are two reasons why I am not convinced that this is an
Ant issue:

01. I have checked, double-checked, and triple-checked our server and
have confirmed that the only version hosted is Ant 1.6.1.

02. If I run the Javadoc target for a monitored project directly from
the server command line (i.e.
/home/cruise/builds/checkout/Project-Name/, Ant will build the JavaDoc
successfully and without complaining.

I've checked the release notes of both Ant 1.6.2 and Cruise Control 2.2
and have found no mention of such an error. Could anyone let me know if
they've experienced a similar issue with Ant and / or Cruise Control?

Thanks in advance, 

Stephen Smith.
