Subject [PATCH] build system: webapp target
Date Mon, 09 Sep 2002 10:28:16 GMT
Hi,

I've been hacking away at a Forrest site for the last 2 weeks, and now
that it's mostly working I'd like to get some of the patches I made back
into Forrest.

First up is a small mod for build.build.xml and forrest.build.xml. There
is a new 'webapp' target, which builds an unpackaged webapp. The existing
'webapp' target has been renamed to 'war'.

The idea is that you point Tomcat to $FORREST_HOME/build/webapp, then run
'./build.sh -f build.build.xml webapp', and then play in the
build/webapp directory, and see immediately the effect of changes. Once
you're happy, roll back the change into src/resouces/*. I find this a
much faster way to work on Forrest than waiting for 7+ minute static
builds.
