Subject RE: Maven-release-plugin AND IBM RTC build engine...
Date Mon, 29 Apr 2013 12:27:50 GMT
Update:
  I still DO NOT have the release plug-in working with RTC build engine.
  However I got an excellent help from the SCM integration developer and I have the release
plug-in
  working from my desktop.
  Some lessons learned:
	use -DworkingDirectory switch to temp directory (to avoid sand-box issues).
	My build was creating temporary files that did not need to be part of the SCM.
	  - These files had to be on RTC (JazzIgnore list), otherwise plug-in warns of modified files
the next time you do the build.
	
	I think creating a fresh workspace directory on RTC build engine (and no spaces in either
directory name or workspace name) it will work as well, unfortunately I don't have access
to RTC build engine...

Thanks,
Robert

Everyone,
 Thanks for suggestions.
 I will try without spaces and reduced length for working directory folder name...
 If I succeed I will post the update...
 It seems most people use release plug-in but not with RTC build engine...
 Or perhaps they don't use long folder names...

Thanks,
Robert

Sorry, I cannot stop laughing because the statement is true, but so sad.

While most Windows APIs and UIs have been fixed to handle special 
characters, such as spaces, sadly there are still places in Windows that 
have not been fixed yet, and likely will never be fixed. Don't get me 
started on path lengths ;-)

However, Linux and OS X should not get off scott free either, as they 
both have problems with special characters too in some places, but maybe 
not in this case.

I have successfully used RTC on Windows with Maven and not had any 
problems with spaces yet, but I never got as far as trying to do a 
release, so I did not want to comment on that special case. For all we 
know this could be a problem with RTC, Maven, or any number of things. I 
look forward to hearing what the solution is.

Cheers, Eric
