Subject RE: Strange behaviour

Antoine,

Thanks for waking me up!

I don't believe it was a problem with Ant but with the environment
settings.
I am deliberately using my own script to call Ant with correct settings
to avoid such problems. I would normally always run my build script in a
new command window. On this occasion I was re-using the same window
whilst debugging and I believe there must have been some rubbish in the
environment settings. Running in a fresh command window has cured the
problem.

Ant.bat is probably OK because the "shift" command moves the other
paramters into %1 so at first glance it looks as though only %1 is being
considered where in fact they all are.

Now that it works I find this a much cleaner way of controlling
taskdefs: I should be able to upgrade to a different release of tools
like xdoclet and hibernate just by changing the lib directives in the
build script (except if they have major API changes of course!)

Danke, Merci, Thanks

Hello Gary,

what you are describing sounds like a bug.

the question is where does the bug happen.

A possible candidate would be ant.bat.

I suspect that the -noclasspath option is not executed reliably
depending upon -quiet comes before -noclasspath or not.

-noclasspath is a command line option which is completely processed in
ant.bat, not reached to the java code.

Actually, a look at the code of ant.bat in ant 1.6.5 shows that the
option only works when it is the first argument on the command line. (or
I do not understand the full picture).

So your build *does not* work when you start it with -noclasspath.

Regards,

Antoine
