Subject Re: Error executing 'maven torque'. Xerces class not found
Date Thu, 07 Jul 2005 21:38:58 GMT
Please don't misunderstand me. I am not complaining, I just want to share this as useful feedback
for the folks that distribute Torque (a tool I use and like a lot).
I had too many problems with the maven build. It retrieved a lot of jars by itself, but some
others it couldn't find. 
Of those it couldn't find, some I found manually, some I wasn't able to find.
Anyway, I didn't know where to put the ones I found. Putting them in the classpath didn't
help, and maven wouldn't say where it was searching.
I finally quit in frustration. I just wanted to use a more up to date torque, not to become
an expert in maven.
I could Read The Fine Material available for Maven - if it was accessible and clear.
Unfortunately, there wasn't an integrated search for Maven docs. and I spent time trying to
figure out where Maven's repository was without success.
Since it also was inconvenient to learn a new build tool, unsupported by my environment, I
decided to call it off and make do without a newer Torque release. After all, what I wanted
to do was developing an app., not use Maven!
I know this won't help you Anthony, but I also thought it would be good for the guys that
work developing Torque how some decisions impact users like me.

Best regards to everyone,
Álvaro Coronel.

I am upgrading from an old version of Torque to the
latest stable release. So I've always used ANT to
build my object model. I installed maven and
downloaded the maven torque plugin per the
documentation. However, when I execute 'maven torque'
I get the following error:

File...... C:\Documents and
Element... taskdef
Line...... 87
Column.... -1
taskdef A class needed by class
org.apache.torque.task.TorqueJDBCTransformTask c

I have all the Torque dependencies in my classpath
including xercesImpl-2.4.0.jar.

JDK 1.4.2
Torque 3.1.1

Any help GREATLY appreciated.
