Subject RE: Copying external file into WAR
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2010 17:36:59 GMT
No need to copy stuff around when creating archives - pick it up from
wherever it is.


To include stuff in the WEB-INF folder, see the webinf section of the
war man page --> http://ant.apache.org/manual/CoreTasks/war.html.


End up with something like this:

        <war destfile="${pub.dir}/${release.war}"
webxml="${websrc.dir}/WEB-INF/web.xml" duplicate="fail">
            <classes dir="${classes.prod.dir}">
                <include name="**/*.class"/>
            </classes>
            <fileset dir="${websrc.dir}">
                <exclude name="**/*.xml"/>
            </fileset>
            <fileset dir="${genSrc.dir}"/>
            <lib dir="${lib.dir}">
                <patternset refid="dependent.libraries"/>
                <patternset refid="other.libraries"/>
            </lib>
            <webinf dir="${websrc.dir}">
                <include name="struts-config.xml"/>
                <include name="cachespec.xml"/>
            </webinf>
        </war>

Then maybe you could accomplish it by doing a copy command. Copy the
file from its source to where you stage the war file, either before you
execute the war task or within the war task.  After I usually run my
clean target, I do all my staging in the init target even if the
compiled classes paths don't exist yet!  I create the directories and
copy my files in advance in the init target and when the javac task
runs, it has no problem or issues with the folders already pre-existing;
it would be the same as an incremental build or not running the clean
target.  I hope this helps.
