Subject Building 3.2.2
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2001 10:12:47 GMT

Good evening all. I have followed the instructions ni README, yet see:



/home/dev/jbberger/source/tomcat/3-2-2/jakarta-tomcat-3.2.2-src/build.xml:32: /home/dev/jbberger/source/tomcat/3-2-2/jakarta-ant-1.3/bin
not found.

Now, it's quite right: there is no ${ant.home}/bin. I have a copy of Ant 1.3. I did the bootstrap,
and added ant.jar to my CLASSPATH. The tomcat build.xml says around line 32:

    <copy todir="${}/bin">
      <fileset dir="${ant.home}/bin" includes="ant*"/>
      <fileset dir="src/shell"/>

There are several files in ${ant.home}/*bin/ant:


But none in ${ant.home}/bin: this directory does not exist!

I am guessing that 1.3 has moved this into the "bootstrap" directory. So, should this line
(#33) be altered in Tomcat's build.xml to <fileset dir="${ant.home}/bootstrap/bin" includes="ant*"/>?
Or should I go back to Ant 1.2? Or am I completely off track here?

This is with Tomcat 3.2.2, Ant 1.3, on Sparc Solaris 8, J2SDK 1.3.1.

Many thanks,
