Subject Re: bootstrap.bat for windows users
Date Wed, 23 Aug 2006 03:09:00 GMT
Tried the new bootstrap.bat with the bootstrap.xml. Failed as follows -

clean:
   [delete] Deleting directory C:\Apache\geronimo\trunk2\thirdparty
BUILD FAILED
C:\Apache\geronimo\trunk2\bootstrap.xml:73: Execute failed: java.io.IOException:
 CreateProcess: mvn clean error=2

Trying again..


Cheers
Prasad
