    Building errors with script language

    zhu ql Newbie

      Hello, bodies

      I'm newly in ANT, as I can't find ANT's offical forums, I put my question here, hoping somebody could help me.

      I use "script language" in my "compas-ant.xml", below is my codes:

      <target name="jar_iterator">
      <script language="beanshell">
      String path=project.getProperty( "compasEARlocation" ) + "/jars";
      File jarsDir = new File( path );
      String[] jars = jarsDir.list(); //all the subdirs containing the expanded jars
      for( i=0; i < jars.length; i++ ){
      print( "Loading " + jars + "..." );
       // launches the manifest task that updates the original manifest with the compas-proxies.jar class-path entry
       manifestUpdater=project.createTask( "manifest" );
       manifestUpdater.setFile( new File(path + "/" + jars + "/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF") );
      org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.ManifestTask.Mode mode = new org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.ManifestTask.Mode();
      mode.setValue( "update" );
      manifestUpdater.setMode( mode );
      org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.Manifest.Attribute clsPath = new org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.Manifest.Attribute( "Class-Path", "compas-proxies.jar jboss_adaptor.jar" );//weblogic_adaptor.jar websphere_adaptor.jar
      manifestUpdater.addConfiguredAttribute( clsPath );
      // creates the jar task and adds it to the repackJARs target
      jarer = project.createTask( "jar" );
      repackJARs.addTask( jarer );
      jarer.setDestFile( new File(path + "/" + jars + ".jar") );
       jarer.setBasedir( new File(path + "/" + jars) );
      jarer.setManifest( new File(path + "/" + jars + "/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF") );

      Here is error-messages after build:
      [java] BUILD FAILED
      [java] file:E:/compas/scripts/compas-ant.xml:163: Could not create task or
      type of type: script.
      [java] Ant could not find the task or a class this task relies upon.
      [java] This is common and has a number of causes; the usual
      [java] solutions are to read the manual pages then download and
      [java] install needed JAR files, or fix the build file:
      [java] - You have misspelt 'script'.
      [java] Fix: check your spelling.
      [java] - The task needs an external JAR file to execute
      [java] and this is not found at the right place in the classpath.
      [java] Fix: check the documentation for dependencies.
      [java] Fix: declare the task.
      [java] - The task is an Ant optional task and optional.jar is absent
      [java] Fix: look for optional.jar in ANT_HOME/lib, download if needed
      [java] - The task was not built into optional.jar as dependent
      [java] libraries were not found at build time.
      [java] Fix: look in the JAR to verify, then rebuild with the needed
      [java] libraries, or download a release version from apache.org
      [java] - The build file was written for a later version of Ant
      [java] Fix: upgrade to at least the latest release version of Ant
      [java] - The task is not an Ant core or optional task
      [java] and needs to be declared using <taskdef>.
      [java] Remember that for JAR files to be visible to Ant tasks implemented
      [java] in ANT_HOME/lib, the files must be in the same directory or on the
      [java] classpath

      BTW, I have used ANT 1.5.4 / 1.6.5 / 1.7.0Beta3 instead, but none of them seemed sucess.
      And "optional.jar", mentioned above, already add to my lib path.

      Waiting for some suggestion, thank you.
