[Bug 242099] New: Ant with Tomcat 5.0 - Custom Ant Tasks not configured properly
  • From: bugzilla_noreply@xxxxxxxxxx

Summary: Ant with Tomcat 5.0 - Custom Ant Tasks not configured
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Final
Platform: x86
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Java
AssignedTo: dbornkessel@xxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: surfari@xxxxxxxxxx

Normally to use Tomcat Custom Ant tasks such as Deploy you have to do as the
instructions say in the example Tomcat build.xml file:

"Copy the file "server/lib/catalina-ant.jar" from your Tomcat 5
installation into the "lib" directory of your Ant installation"

For OpenSuse 10,.2 this would translate as putting a link
"/usr/share/tomcat5/server/lib/catalina-ant5.jar" into "/usr/share/ant/lib"

All catalina-ant simlinks apparently point to
I even put a copy into "usr/shar/java/ant"

Anyway Ant cannot seem to find ANY of these and fails to work on a standard
build.xml file for servlets / jsps etc. Error=
"taskdef class org.apache.catalina.ant.DeployTask cannot be found"

Can be fixed if a specific classpath is added to the taskdef.

<taskdef name="deploy" classpath="/usr/share/java/catalina-ant5.jar"

But this can't be right surely...? What is etc/ant.conf all about...?
