Subject Re: calling ant launcher
Date Sun, 09 Apr 2006 07:40:46 GMT
Found a good explenation for my error here:

http://www.jspwiki.org/wiki/A2AClassCastException

Building a servlet that invokes Ant,
one should not use the Launcher.java in favor of the Ant class Project.java:

This is my invoker - assuming ant.jar, ant-launcher.jar and e.g. 
ant-trax.jar in WEB-INF/lib:

    private void execAnt( Properties properties, String buildFile ) {
        try {
            // create a project
            final Project project = new Project();
            // Add the default listener - a simple Logger extending 
BuildLogger
            project.addBuildListener( new AntLogger() );
            // set the classloader
            project.setCoreLoader(this.getClass().getClassLoader());
            // set the input handler, don't know if this is really needed
            project.setInputHandler(new DefaultInputHandler());
            // init
            project.init();
            // set the version and other properties
            project.setUserProperty(MagicNames.ANT_VERSION, "unknown" );
            for( Object property: properties.keySet() )
                project.setUserProperty( (String)property,
                        properties.getProperty( (String)property) );
            // set the path to the build file
            project.setUserProperty(MagicNames.ANT_FILE, buildFile );
            // configure the project
            ProjectHelper.configureProject(project, new File( buildFile) );
            // set the target
            Vector<String> targets = new Vector<String>();
            targets.addElement(project.getDefaultTarget());
            // execute the project
            project.executeTargets(targets);
        } catch( Throwable t ) { log.error( FAILED, t );
        } finally {}
    }
