Subject [jira] Updated: (FOR-752) Forrestbot "build" workstage creates spurious "build/webapp/WEB-INF/logs" directory
Date Sat, 15 Apr 2006 10:23:00 GMT
     [ ]

Ross Gardler updated FOR-752:

    Urgency: Normal

Uppin gthe urgency a level - not a critical bug, but we really should not have hard coded
paths and Matheiu has identified what needs to be changed - not too much for a committer to
do now (other than find the time ;-)

>         Type: Bug

> 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:
> org.apache.avalon.excalibur.logger.factory.FileTargetFactory.createTarget(
> 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.
