Subject RE: getting relative paths maven + continuum
Date Tue, 07 Aug 2007 16:41:06 GMT
Christian, thanks for your help.

This is a situation where an artifact is not workable... this might be too much to ask but
can you give me an idea how I might use metadata to solve my problem?

Ultimately I must pass a file location to an Ant task...

Yes - I thought it might be this.  You can't do that and expect continuum to understand it.
 In fact, continuum checked out your child projects into their own folders that have no relation
to the parent.  There's literally no way to know what to set that property to.

If you have things in the parent that are necessary to the children, then you need to make
sure they are available to the children either through metadata, or by being included in an
artifact (jar) that the children have access to.

You haven't "configured things incorrectly" - your project design is problematic, because
it makes the assumption that your folder structure is constant.  With maven, you should not
make that assumption.  With continuum, you cannot make that assumption.
