Errors in running Ant scripts

Posted on 2009-07-14
Last Modified: 2013-11-23

I am trying to run  a ant script through RAD j2ee project. It ran fine from one computer RAD j2ee project. It is not running on other computer with similar RAD project set up, references etc by Complaining like cannot found.

In the classpaath i see that jdbcresultset  jar though. No compilation errors as such in work space as well.

Not sure why Ant script does not run and abruptly stops in middle and throws error message saying cannot find cannot found.

Any ideas, sample code, resources highly appreciated. Thanks in advance

is it in the classpath specified in the ant build file?

That error ALWAYS is a classpath error (unless the class name supplied is wrong of course).

Just because you set the system classpath to something (there's no need to ever do that) doesn't mean it's going to be used by an application.
Any properly configured Java application sets its own classpath to include what it needs and only what it needs.

If you're still having difficulties, run the following and post the file ant.log here:
ant -d &>ant.log

On the second machine it complains
    [javac] file com\ibm\ws\ffdc\FFDCSelfIntrospectable.class not found like

    [javac] C:\xyz_WorkSpace\060909_1\ cannot access

    [javac] file com\ibm\ws\ffdc\FFDCSelfIntrospectable.class not found

    [javac] if (resultSet instanceof WSJdbcResultSet) {

    [javac] ^

    [javac] Note: C:\xyz_WorkSpace\ uses or overrides a deprecated API.

    [javac] Note: Recompile with -Xlint:deprecation for details.

    [javac] 1 error



 but on first machinee it works fine. I want to know under which jar does
 FFDCSelfIntrospectable.class resides in so that i can copy paste same jar from first working machine to second  not working machine. please advise

That's a Webshpere class. If you search on the classname under your Websphere tree with this app, you should find the jar:

check the build path used on the good machine and compare the directory contents with whats on the bad nachine. that should show you whats different

running ant in verbose mode may also help
