Subject Re: Override ignored?
Date Mon, 06 Oct 2003 21:47:07 GMT
One problem I seem to notice is that the property "ant.home" is being set in
a file (hence the override ignored message)  I am pretty
sure that ant.home comes in as a user property and those cannot be
overriden.  Also check to see if jboss.configuration property also being set
as a user property.

Subject: Override ignored?

We are trying to setup each user with a which overrides a
section of the ones set in the main and each module;
however, we are getting "override ignored" and the build fails.  I tried
removing the user specific sections from everything but the users but still get override ignored and paths are incorrect.

build.xml properties section like this...

  <property file="" />
  <property file="${user.home}/" />

ant -v output:
Apache Ant version 1.5.4 compiled on August 12 2003
Buildfile: build.xml
Detected Java version: 1.4 in: C:\j2sdk1.4.2_01\jre
Detected OS: Windows 2000
parsing buildfile build.xml with URI =
Project base dir set to: C:\cvsworking_cld\PM\collection
 [property] Loading C:\cvsworking_cld\PM\collection\
Property ${pm.home} has not been set
Property ${tomcat.home} has not been set
 [property] Loading C:\Documents and Settings\mullerd\
Override ignored for property ant.home
Override ignored for property jboss.configuration

Can anyone shed some light?
