Are you behind a firewall at all, CVS has been working fine for me for ages now.
today was my lucky day, I actually got sourceforge cvs to talk to my computer.
I found the JBoss-3.2 module to be empty.
I first found the jboss module.
Using the ant build.xml file from that, I found it wanted two more modules
tools and thirdparty
I then found it has a error in the build.xml, it refers to
which should be
Now it appears that the build file is only configured for sun computer, I am using Windows 2000 Prof.
I get the following
Trying to override old definition of task property
Overriding previous definition of reference to xdoclet.task.classpath
BUILD FAILED: C:\jboss\buildjboss\jboss\build.xml:234: JavaCC home must be a valid directory.
Total time: 4 seconds
So time for a sanity check on this process. Am I on the right track? Why does the wiki and other start up stuff refer to JBoss-3.2
I am now able to get to cvs via
Note, some documentation refered to
:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/ which got me nowhere.....
This has been a slow, confusing, and error prone process with lots of incorrect information provided. I still have not done a build of JBoss or the tutorial and can't hope to contribute to fixing any bugs until I can.
Ignore all the stuff in the docs and forums about cvs. Use the download menu on the jboss home page and get the source from a zip file. Unzip the zip file.
Then set your eclipse project to jboss-4.0.0RC2-src\build and run the ant build from there. This produces source that compiles.
The ant output seems to include everything from java to idl to some template expansions and back again. It will take me a while to figure out what that is all about.
Have you tried the CVS commands from http://www.jboss.org/wiki/Wiki.jsp?page=JBossInstallation, I usually use these without any problems.
Occasionaly the source will not build but that is usually because someone is only half way through commiting changes or you need to clean your projects.
