Here's another peculiarity I found with the JWSC Ant Task
- even though the documentation specifies that the srcdir
attribute is mandatory, it is not enforced which leads to falsely reported failures during the 'Processing x JAX-WS web services...'
This one had me stumbled for a while. JWSC was reporting compilation failures, but the final build status was a success. In addition when I examined the produced WAR
file, it contained the very classes and packages that JWSC was claiming were missing.
My JWSC task was being used like this...
Since I was using module
and specifying srcdir
attribute on the jwsfileset
, I didn't think to set the same attribute on the jwsc
This resulted in output like this (sanitised for readability):
Once I set the srcdir
attribute on the jwsc
task, all of these processing errors went away. It seems a little redundant to have to specify the source directory in multiple places to me, but I guess there is little choice if you want clean build system output.
