Subject Struts 1.2.9 - build failed
Date Tue, 29 Aug 2006 20:37:32 GMT
I am attempting to build struts 1.2.9 and having issues. It seems to build
the main struts.jar fine, but fails later in the process when building

I guess I have two questions. 

First, is there any value in building the struts-examples? Do they provide
any functionality to the framework?


Second, if I do want to build the examples, why is the environment not
keeping the struts.home property?

The struts.home property in the struts-1.2.9/src/struts-examples/mailreader
folder is not being set correctly (or being overwritten).


>>From the build.xml file, the struts home is set on line 36 as follows, where
the basedir is specified as "."


34>       <!-- Dependency home directory defaults -->

35>       <property name="server.home"      value="C:/Program Files/Apache
Group/Tomcat 5.5"/>

36>       <property name="struts.home"      value="${basedir}/../../dist"/>


Later when the build process runs, the value of struts.home is echoed to the
command line.

The value that is displayed is "/../../"


I have tried manually overwriting the struts.home variable bu changing line
36 in the build.xml file to read


<property name="struts.home"      value="C:/Program Files/Apache


But when the build executes, I still see the value of struts.home displayed
as "/../../".


Has anyone run across this before, or does anyone have an idea why this
might be occurring?


(Of course, if I don't need the examples, ignore question 2.)
