How about
GNU Autoconf, Automake and Libtool
Vaughan, Elliston, Tromey and Taylor
New Riders, 2000
ISBN: 1-57870-190-2
But I think Ken meant axis-specific documentation. 
Automake support is essential as far as we are concerned, and I'm very
grateful to Ken for offering to supply this.

Hi Ken, 

Well, if you're willing to maintain it then that's great :-) As you've
probably seen- the only reason we don't want to maintain it is that we don't
have the time/skills. 

As for documentation - hmm ! Not sure there is much for the GNU system
(another one of our reasons for not using it !) I thought there was some on
the web pages but couldn't find it just now ! 

Anyone else seen any docs for the GNU make system? 

thanks for your help Ken :-)

Re: axis 1.5 build failed in FC 3



Would you folks like assistance building / maintaining a GNU automake system
for this?  I have a little experience with this.  I know the team really
likes Ant, but the reality is that this is a C++ project and I think
developers will be expecting a GNU automake -style of build.

If the Axis team *is* interested in this, then can someone send me any
documentation you have on the build requirements?  If not, then sorry for
the interruption...

You don't mention exactly which version of ANT, etc.  you are using.
We are using a couple of features that are only present in later versions.
The versions I use, and are also used for the nightly build are:
Java - v1.4.1
ANT - v.1.6.1
ant-contrib - v0.6
cpptasks - v1.0beta3

These versions _should_ be mentioned in the documentation.  Alas, taking a
quick look now, I find the levels for ant-contrib and cpptasks are not
explicitly mentioned.  However, running the command "ant -projecthelp" on
build.xml or package.xml provides some basic setup documentation, which
does now include the above information.

Could you check which versions you are using, and upgrade if required.

I cannot exactly understand what is going wrong with ant based pacaking.

Adrian, could you please help ass you are the expert in this space.

Dear Samisa and other folks,

Thanks for your suggestion.  This is really a problem of header files.

I've solved that problem finally.  Now, running "ant" has no problem.

But when I run "ant -f package.xml", and returns error saying that the
"symlink" type is missing.  I am using Ant from  <>
Would that causes the problem?

I don't know whether that's an extra module in Ant or it's included in
the Ant core. (I am no-voice user to ant. Please find the error in the
end of this email)

Did you have similar error?

I tried sh -x ant -f package.xml and look at the classpath.  Here it is:

++ exec /usr/lib/jvm/java/bin/java -
classpath /usr/share/java/ant.jar:/usr/share/java/ant-
ar -Dant.home=/usr/share/ant -Dant.library.dir=/usr/share/ant/lib -lib '' -f package.xml

symlink error >>>>>>>>>>>

Thanks so much for your help.
