Subject [jira] [Reopened] (CLOUDSTACK-1304) "mvn -pl :cloud-client-ui jetty:run" strips permission of files in script/
Date Sat, 02 Mar 2013 19:33:12 GMT


Hugo Trippaers reopened CLOUDSTACK-1304:

I reverted this commit because it breaks the system for developers who use an operating system
that has no cp or mkdir command (the mkdir was later added by Rohit)

I did not notice the original issue because the executable bit is not an issue on windows
systems. We should find an alternative way to do this to solve this problem in a way that
works on all operating systems. It's mainly a developer problem as the permissions are set
using the packaging scripts for deployments.

A check if mkdir and cp exists before doing the copy should work i think, but maybe there
is an ant task that will take care of the permissions on unix based systems,

> "mvn  -pl :cloud-client-ui jetty:run" calls ant task <copy> to copy files under
script/ to "${basedir}/target/generated-webapp/WEB-INF/classes/scripts">
> it will strip all permission on files to default system permission which erases execution
bit on script. the reason is 
> "Unix Note: File permissions are not retained when files are copied; they end up with
the default UMASK permissions instead. This is caused by the lack of any means to query or
set file permissions in the current Java runtimes. If you need a permission-preserving copy
function, use <exec executable="cp" ... > instead."
> this issue will prevent mgmt server executes any shell script due to lacking of execution
permission on script
