Subject [jira] Created: (HADOOP-34) Build Paths Relative to PWD in build.xml
Date Mon, 13 Feb 2006 17:01:26 GMT
Build Paths Relative to PWD in build.xml

         Key: HADOOP-34
         URL: http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-34
     Project: Hadoop
        Type: Bug
 Environment: Fedora Core 4
    Reporter: Jeremy Bensley
    Priority: Trivial

In the build.xml file, many paths are defined in terms of the present working directory (PWD)
instead of relative to the location of the build.xml. Thus, whenever trying to compile from
a directory other than the hadoop root, errors such as this appear:

/home/jeremy/cvs/hadoop/build.xml:109: org.apache.jasper.JasperException: The -uriroot option
must specify a pre-existing directory

I have scripts / vim parameters that connect to other machines for compiling using ssh, and
am not necessarily always in the root whenever I compile.

I am attaching a patch which sets all paths relative to ${basedir}, and removes the override
of ${basedir} to the PWD. Please let me know if there are reasons why the build environment
must be relative to the working directory.
