Re: GNV bash and Ant

Philippe,

 

   If the issue is just the DCL 8 parameter limit, note that in V8.4 you can increase the limit to 16 by setting bit 3 in DCL_CTLFLAGS.

 

(No doubt many folk will avoid using the increased limit for fear of locking themselves on V8.4 or higher)

Re: GNV bash and Ant

John,

 

The HP customer I wrote this article and accordingly modified Ant source code for has to run Maven from a Unix compatible shell as Maven forks lots of ls commands to get file attributes. Maven is used to rebuild Axis-2 which is svn checked out. One of the Axis-2 Maven tasks is to activate Ant.  Ant was NOT designed for a Unix compatible shell under OpenVMS (it is only designed to run under DCL and spawns DCL commands, some of them incompatible for an execution under GNV bash).

 

All the above conditions explain you why I did modify Ant so that it runs under GNV bash the exact same way it  does under any Unix operating system. Hence my article I posted the URL link of.

 

Totally related to this Axis-2 rebuilding goal and in this HP customer work environment, I just entered these two new documents in my knowledge database:

http://vouters.dyndns.org/tima/All-OS-Oracle-Java-Problem_attempting_to_go_through_Basic_authentication_required_company_Web_server_proxy.html

http://vouters.dyndns.org/tima/All-OS-ANT-ANT_and_URLs_authentication.html

As the html filename of these two papers indicates the problem is not specific to but includes OpenVMS.

 

Perhaps some other new articles to come related to Axis-2 building from sources.

Kind regards,

Philippe

Re: GNV bash and Ant

Still for those interested with !

 

Here is my latest article. It is related to Maven and its Ant usage on OpenVMS. Everything is done under GNV bash. This is still in the goal of running a successful Axis-2 build on OpenVMS using Axis-2 designed tools in a user context which requires Web authentication.

 

You will find my technical paper at: http://vouters.dyndns.org/tima/OpenVMS-Java-Maven-Ant-Invoking_Ant_from_within_Maven-Solution_when_running_custom_Ant_version.html

 

In the hope this may also interest some of you.

Regards to everyone,

Philippe
