Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2573) Create master ant target for generating all release artifacts, including code and doc artifacts
Date Tue, 01 Sep 2009 18:00:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2573?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12750014#action_12750014

Rick Hillegas commented on DERBY-2573:

Thanks for the patch, Myrna.

>I made a target - prepareforrelease - which will do all the little ant steps to prepare
for the actual build step; incl clobbering and deleting stuff; checking for sane property
set, checking for state.properties existing, checking that tools/ant/packaging.properties
exist, ant sane, ant all, ant buildjars, ant clobber, ant insane, ant -Dsane snapshot, ant

I took it for a test drive and it worked: it built sane and insane jars which seemed to be
the right size. It told me that I needed to remove some directives from my ant.properties--I
thought those error messages were helpful.

>It's not dealing with copying the built error list for the reference guide (not sure that's
even possible, as we'd have to do an svn commit?) nor with attempting to build the docs, nor
any of the other tasks explicitly.

One thing I noticed is that packaging.properties already has a property which tells the build
where the docs live. It should be easy to use that property to figure out where to copy rrefexcept71493.dita
and then where to cd to so that the docs can be built. It also ought to be possible to run
subversion commands from ant. At least, that's what's promised by this web page: http://ant.apache.org/antlibs/svn/index.html
. No doubt the devil is in the details.
