Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-5023) Cannot find Ant libraries when building from NetBeans
Date Mon, 14 Feb 2011 15:44:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-5023?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12994342#comment-12994342
] 

Knut Anders Hatlen commented on DERBY-5023:
-------------------------------------------

Oops... This change seems to have broken the build in the Tinderbox: http://dbtg.foundry.sun.com/derby/test/tinderbox_trunk16/UpdateInfo/1070502-buildDetails.txt

I can reproduce this build break using Ant 1.6.5. BUILDING.html however states that Ant 1.7.0
or newer is required, so I'll check which version is used by the Tinderbox and update it if
needed.

> Building Derby doesn't work out of the box in NetBeans. The wiki page http://wiki.apache.org/db-derby/BuildingDerby
instructs NetBeans users to specify the ant.library.dir property in order to get the build
working.
> The Ant documentation says the following about the ant.library.dir property: "The following
property is only set if Ant is started via the Launcher class (which means it may not be set
inside IDEs either)" - http://ant.apache.org/manual/properties.html
> Since the property is not guaranteed to be set, I suggest that we replace references
to "${ant.library.dir}/ant.jar" with references to "${ant.core.lib}" in the build scripts.
According to the above mentioned Ant manual page the ant.core.lib property should always be
available and point to ant.jar. Changing this makes it possible to build Derby from NetBeans
with no special customization.
