Subject [jira] Created: (FOR-752) Forrestbot "build" workstage creates spurious "build/webapp/WEB-INF/logs" directory
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2005 22:30:31 GMT
Forrestbot "build" workstage creates spurious "build/webapp/WEB-INF/logs" directory

         Key: FOR-752
     Project: Forrest
        Type: Bug
  Components: Forrestbot  
    Versions: 0.7    
    Reporter: Richard Calmbach
    Priority: Minor

When running Forrestbot with the default value for property "" (namely "work/${}"),
"" is set to the same value and consequently, "project.webapp" is set to
"work/${}/webapp". However, one of the two "logs" directories continues to
be created at "build/webapp/WEB-INF/logs", suggesting that somewhere a hardcoded value is
used instead of ${project.webapp}. The mkdir command for this "logs" directory is not in any
of the Ant build files in the Forrest distribution; it must be in one of the Java classes,
probably in a class related to logging. I forced an I/O failure by turning off all permissions
on build/webapp and running "forrest -f build.xml build". This yielded a stacktrace that originated
7 calls before:


The remaining 7 invokations were not displayed (just "... 7 more").

The upshot of this bug is that running "forrest -f build.xml clean" misses the "logs" directory
in the unexpected location. My workaround right now is to use a custom "clean-all" target
that depends on "clean" and that deletes the spurious "build/webapp" directory.
