Subject Re: CVS failure notification..
Date Fri, 19 Aug 2005 15:08:16 GMT
Hello,

one way to do this is to use error and output
attributes of <cvs> task (quote from [1]):
output - the file to direct standard output from the
(cvs) command.
error - the file to direct standard error from the
(cvs) command

So you can store the error in a text file, than load
that file as a property and check whether it
<condition>[2] whether contains a given error message.

Here is the pseudo code:
<cvs command="checkout"
cvsRoot=":pserver:anoncvs@cvs.apache.org:/home/cvspublic"
  package="my_module"
  dest="${checkout.dir}"
  error="${cvs.error.file}"
/>
<loadfile property="cvs.error.msg"
  srcfile="${cvs.error.file}"/>

<condition property="cvs.error">
  <contains string="${cvs.error.msg}"
   
substring="<cvs_error_msg_that_might_be_returned>">
</condition>

The problem in this approach is that you should find
all possible cvs_error_msg_that_might_be_returned.

Well, you can also do the following: if the error file
is created, then obviously there is an error while
checking the module out. Instead of trying to find the
exact error, mail the whole error file :)

Regards
Ivan
