Subject Using path/refid for manifest classpath
Date Thu, 19 Oct 2006 07:34:37 GMT
Hello,

I just started using ANT within Eclipse. I have an application that gets
deployed as a JAR file.
To construct the classpath within the manifest, I first stated all used
libs manually in the build.xml but thought that there has to be a better
solution to this.

So, I now use a path that gets converted via pathconvert to remove the
preceding basedir (second "-->"). This works but the manifest contains a
backslash in the classpath: "Class-Path: lib\app-shared-0.3.0.jar".

Here are parts of my build.xml:

	<path id ="external.lib">
		<fileset dir="${lib}">
			<include name="**/*.jar"/>
		</fileset>
	</path>


	<target name="compile" depends="init" description="compile the
source">
		<buildnumber/>

		<!-- Compile the java code from ${src} into ${build} -->
-->		<javac srcdir="${src}" destdir="${build}"
classpathref="external.lib"/>
	</target>


	<target name="generateJAR" depends="compile"
description="generate the jarfile">

		<pathconvert property="dingens" refid="external.lib">
			<globmapper from="${basedir}\" to=""/>
		</pathconvert>

		<!-- Create the manifest -->
		<manifest file="${jar.manifest}">

			<attribute name="Built-By"
value="${user.name}"/>
			<attribute name="Main-Class"
value="${jar.mainclass}"/>

-->			<attribute name="Class-Path"
value="${dingens}"/>
		</manifest>
		<!-- Put everything in ${build} into the jar file -->
		<jar jarfile="${jar.file}" basedir="${build}"
manifest="${jar.manifest}"/>
	</target>



Although the JAR works I would like to know if there is a better way. I
already searched with google, in the faqs and in the wiki.


Cheers
Lars
