Subject Re: Custom Ant Task with 3rd party library dependency
Date Tue, 03 May 2005 14:36:11 GMT
Hi ,

Yes I have tried that (well a variety of this type of thing) and it is not 
working for me...

In my 'main' build.xml file I do this:

<typedef resource="org/appfuse/ant/appfuse-contrib.xml"
         classpath="spring.jar;rename-packages-1.0.jar"
         uri="appfuse:/org.appfuse.ant"/>

Then, in my appfuse-contrib.xml file I do:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<antlib>

   <taskdef name="renamepackages"
            classname="org.appfuse.ant.RenamePackages"
            classpath="spring.jar"
            onerror="fail"/>

</antlib>

But whatever I try setting either classpath to (or even if I use inline 
classpath, or classpathref), my custom ant task cannot find the spring 
classes..

Is it possible what I am trying to do?  Eric's article + other postings I 
have read seem to suggest, the only two ways of using 3rd party classes from 
wthin a custom task is to ether a) kick off a new JVM task or b) put the 
jars in the System classpath (ie. ANT_HOME/lib)..

Can anyone confirm either way??

&gt;Hello Ben,
&gt;
&gt;Have you tried with to &lt;taskdef&gt; your custom task with
&gt;classpath nested tag:
&gt;&lt;taskdef classname=&quot;org.myorg.MyTask&quot;&gt;
&gt;   &lt;classpath&gt;
&gt;   &lt;!-- location to your jars here --&gt;
&gt;   &lt;/classpath&gt;
&gt;&lt;/taskdef&gt;
&gt;
&gt;HTH Ivan

&gt; &gt; Hi,
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; My custom Ant task relies on the Spring jar files,
&gt; &gt; but whatever I try, I get
&gt; &gt; a class not found exception..
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; I read a lot of posts on this and saw Eric's article
&gt; &gt; here:
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt;
&gt;http://www.fawcette.com/javapro/2003_02/magazine/features/ehatcher/
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; But I cannot believe I have to spawn off a JVM to
&gt; &gt; pick up the spring jar's
&gt; &gt; do I?
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; and I really dont want to force any user that uses
&gt; &gt; my task to copy the jar's
&gt; &gt; into their $ANT_HOME/lib...
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; Has anyone got a nice, tidy way of making 3rd party
&gt; &gt; jar files available to a
&gt; &gt; custom task?
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt; Thanks
&gt; &gt;
&gt; &gt;
