Re: axis 1.5 build failed in FC 3

Samisa:

I'm on it... I will sign up for the dev list and get to work on fixing the Axis GNU build problems.

Please be patient with me... I am extremely busy with my real job, right now, but I'll fit things in where I can.

Thanks,  Ken

Hi Ken,

            You could be on [hidden email] list.

 

            Some comments on make build system:

1.       One of the challenges in the past was that it is hard to maintain Makefile.am files given that there is a very high likelihood of files being removed/added. The ant system is better off because it can pick files with *.cpp wildcard. Is there any chance that we could get the Makefile.am to be auto generated based on the *.cpp files available in a given folder? (Would it be a good idea to have a shell script to auto generate the Makefile.am files?)

2.       We have faced the automake system challenges in the past in that the older versions and newer versions not behaving consistently. On different Linux flavors with different automake versions did not work properly

3.       We have Makefile.am files in many folders. Only things is that they have not being updated for new additions and removals of files. May be you could reuse those.

 

Thanks,

Samisa…

John & Tony:

OK, cool.  Not having been a contributor to any Apache project before, is there a link that can get me started?

Also, should I be on a different mail list, or is the axis-c-user list just fine?

Thanks, Ken

How about
 
GNU Autoconf, Automake and Libtool

New Riders, 2000
ISBN: 1-57870-190-2
 
But I think Ken meant axis-specific documentation.
 
Automake support is essential as far as we are concerned, and I'm very grateful to Ken for offering to supply this.

Hi Ken,


Well, if you're willing to maintain it then that's great :-) As you've probably seen- the only reason we don't want to maintain it is that we don't have the time/skills.


As for documentation - hmm ! Not sure there is much for the GNU system (another one of our reasons for not using it !) I thought there was some on the web pages but couldn't find it just now !


Anyone else seen any docs for the GNU make system?



thanks for your help Ken :-)

Hi,

Would you folks like assistance building / maintaining a GNU automake system for this?  I have a little experience with this.  I know the team really likes Ant, but the reality is that this is a C++ project and I think developers will be expecting a GNU automake -style of build.

If the Axis team *is* interested in this, then can someone send me any documentation you have on the build requirements?  If not, then sorry for the interruption...

Ken

Hi,

You don't mention exactly which version of ANT, etc.  you are using.
We are using a couple of features that are only present in later versions.
The versions I use, and are also used for the nightly build are:
Java - v1.4.1
ANT - v.1.6.1
ant-contrib - v0.6
cpptasks - v1.0beta3

These versions _should_ be mentioned in the documentation.  Alas, taking a
quick look now, I find the levels for ant-contrib and cpptasks are not
explicitly mentioned.  However, running the command "ant -projecthelp" on
build.xml or package.xml provides some basic setup documentation, which
does now include the above information.

Could you check which versions you are using, and upgrade if required.

Thanks,
Adrian

I cannot exactly understand what is going wrong with ant based pacaking.

Adrian, could you please help ass you are the expert in this space.


Thanks,

Dear Samisa and other folks,

Thanks for your suggestion.  This is really a problem of header files.

I've solved that problem finally.  Now, running "ant" has no problem.

But when I run "ant -f package.xml", and returns error saying that the
"symlink" type is missing.  I am using Ant from
www.jpackage.org.
Would that causes the problem?

I don't know whether that's an extra module in Ant or it's included in
the Ant core. (I am no-voice user to ant. Please find the error in the
end of this email)

Did you have similar error?

I tried sh -x ant -f package.xml and look at the classpath.  Here it is:

++ exec /usr/lib/jvm/java/bin/java -
classpath /usr/share/java/ant.jar:/usr/share/java/ant-
launcher.jar:/usr/share/java/ant-
contrib.jar:/usr/share/java/cpptasks.jar:/usr/share/java/jaxp_parser_imp
l.jar:/usr/share/java/xml-commons-apis.jar:/usr/lib/jvm/java/lib/tools.j
ar -Dant.home=/usr/share/ant -Dant.library.dir=/usr/share/ant/lib
org.apache.tools.ant.launch.Launcher -lib '' -f package.xml

Thanks so much for your help.
