Deploy module failing for linked module

Postby eepgmik » Fri Jul 10, 2009 7:06 am


I'm using version 7.1 of GWTDesigner in Eclipse and am trying to deploy a module that links to another project in Eclipse. I don't have the exact code or GWTDesigner to hand (I'll post it tonight). In version 6 it worked fine but now in 7 I'm getting an error with the prefix to the generated path to the other compiled project.

Basically all the working paths in the build.xml file begin with '@{dot}/' (or similar) but the failing one just begins with 'war/'. If I manually edit the XML file and change 'war/' to '{@dot}/' then the build runs fine but I have to manually choose the build.xml and run it. I much prefer just being able to RMB>...>Deploy.

It seems like a simple bug in the deploy code but of course I don't have access to that.

I don't really understand the problem you are describing. I think we need to see a detailed (complete) example.

I created a GWT project and a Java library project for it.

The deployment script looks normal and generates what is expected (e.g., library jar in "war/WEB-INF/lib" folder)...

Code: Select all
    <target name="jars" description="Package up the module project and required projects as jars">
        <mkdir dir="war/WEB-INF/lib" />
        <!--=== GWT_0 ===-->
        <jar destfile='war/WEB-INF/lib/GWT_0.jar'>
            <fileset dir="C:/eclipse/runtime-workspace/GWT_0/src">
                <include name="**"/>
            <fileset dir="C:/eclipse/runtime-workspace/GWT_0/war/WEB-INF/classes">
                <include name="**/*.class"/>
        <!--=== GWT_Lib ===-->
        <jar destfile='war/WEB-INF/lib/GWT_Lib.jar'>
            <fileset dir="C:/eclipse/runtime-workspace/GWT_Lib/src">
                <include name="**"/>
            <fileset dir="C:/eclipse/runtime-workspace/GWT_Lib/bin">
                <include name="**/*.class"/>
