Subject RE: I may be wrong but...
Date Sat, 21 Jun 2003 19:32:16 GMT
I downloaded xml-cocoon2 from cvs to my local file system today. The tip
revision of build.properties that came to my system, (rev 1.15) reads as
follows:

#----------------------------------------------
#  Cocoon Build Properties
#----------------------------------------------

# NOTE: don't modify this file directly but copy the properties you need
# to modify over to a file named 'local.build.properties' and modify that.
# The build system will overwrite these properties with the ones in the
# 'local.build.properties' file.

# ----
Webapp ------------------------------------------------------------------

exclude.webapp.documentation=true
exclude.webapp.javadocs=true
exclude.webapp.scratchpad=true
exclude.webapp.samples=true

exclude.scratchpad=true
exclude.deprecated=true
.
.
.
.

Notice that the exclude.webapp.documentation and exclude.webapp.samples
etal. are _not_ commented out. In order to build these targets
build.properties has to be modified.

But that's okay because really the result of the build doesn't work in many
more ways than that. I got rid of that code and went with the stable (?)
2.1m2 release that's made available as a zip from somewhere and built it and
it works fine. I'll just go with that.

Thanks for your help.

We're either looking at different files or you are misunderstanding
something
you're seeing.  Which property are you looking at specifically?
