Re: [abc-users] getting started questions

Thanks Eric,
Yes, I had all the variables set with their fully qualified names.
I guess one of the mistakes I had was that I didn't change the Base Directory to abc-aj when running its ANT script, so it couldn't find its ant.settings.
After pointing to the right Base Directory, when I ran abc-aj it errors out that the (abc) ant.settings need to be copied and the variables to be set, so I changed the lib.loc in the abc's ant.settings file, to its fully qualified path, and ran the ANT script for abc again, and it errored on
<jar destfile="lib/abc-testing.jar"> the archive doesn't exist.
I added the lib/abc-testing.jar to ANT's runtime Global Entities, but I still have the same error.
Please advise,
Thank you,

>  1- I'm running ant within eclipse, and the first project (abc) got built successfully, using build.xml, I just copied ant.settings.template into a new file ant.settings and without editing anything it went through. Do I also need to run ant using ( build-abc, build-exer1, build exer2) I tried to do that and it errored out for not finding classes.

No, you should just be able to run the "jars" task. If that works out then you should be fine.

> 2- I tried to run ANT on the second project (abc-ja) with the appropriate build.xml, and copied ant.settings.template into ant.settings, but I keep getting this error: "Please copy ant.settings.template to ant.settings and customise if necessary..." I tried editing ant.settings file with fully qualified paths, but I'm still getting the same error.

Within the ant.settings file, did you set all the appropriate variables? build.xml gives you this error message if it finds certain necessary variables undefined (have a look at the script).
