Subject RE: After a successful build of tomcat from build.xml, how do I i nstall it?
Date Thu, 09 Jun 2005 14:38:57 GMT
Thanks!  That worked.  In the end, I opted for the 'ant release' way of
doing it, but I can see that the other way works too.

Optionally copy your build.properties file to .../jakarta-tomcat-5.  Then in

your .../jakarta-tomcat-5/build.properties file add the property:
tomcat.dist=/path/to/my/tomcat/install/dir

Then from .../jakarta-tomcat-5 do 'ant dist'.  This is the closest to 'ant 
install' that you can get.  The other option (w/o necessarily setting the 
property above) is to do 'ant release' from the .../jakarta-tomcat-5 
directory.  That will create the source and binary release .tar.gz and .zip 
files that you could otherwise install just as if you had downloaded them.

In short, the top-level build.xml is just a convenience file.  The one with 
all the power is the one in jakarta-tomcat-5.
