Subject Re: Problems with <ant antfile..> and <java> - (directory path issues)
Date Sat, 01 Jan 2011 20:31:01 GMT


I was basically having the same problem you were (I discovered your post
when I was trying to find a better fix).

It's 1/1/2011 now and I am using the latest ANT (v1.8.2 was released on Dec
27) and have been trying every sort of combination with no luck at all.

I finally gave up and am using a Jython script block to do a "os.chdir" if I
detect the paths are messed up.

I actually do two dir checks/fixes for each ant antfile call (if I have to
change the working dir for the build.xml that gets called, I also have to
undo it).

I'm trying to avoid external bat files and shell scripts to try and keep
things simple.

My ANT directory problem was on a Windows Vista machine, I have not yet
tried the same build on OS X yet.
