Encountering the same problem. The first thing that I noticed is that the generated local.properties file (build.sh init) creates an invalid path for the XDoclet root.
I changed the '-' to a '/' and the JMXDoclet error went away, but then a new error, related to Apache Commons (Logger) appears. I did poke around in libraries.ent from the build scripts, but with no success.
I recall seeing a similar thread elsewhere. If I can find it and there is a response, I will forward it to here.
Follow up to my previous post:
I had this problem as well. The source of the problem for me was that I checked out the JBoss source under the jboss-all module.
If you did that, try checking out the source under the jboss-head module. I successfully compiled under that module.
Maybe you can help me out.
I wanted to checkout jboss-head by running the following command under Win2K :
I:\Download\JBoss>cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot/jboss co jboss-head
But I was unable to run the build command as the error shown below :
Calling ..\tools\bin\ant.bat -logger org.apache.tools.ant.NoBannerLogger
Trying to override old definition of task property
[copy] Copying 1 file to I:\Download\JBoss\jboss-head\build
: taskdef class xdoclet.modules.jmx.JMXDocletTask cannot be found
Total time: 4 seconds
Press any key to continue . . .
What did I miss ?
Thanks for your help.
Looks exactly the same AFAIK but I'm just showed you what worked for me. I had being doing a -r HEAD with jboss-all and that produced the same problem you have.
BTW, did you do a "build init" after you checked it out?
FYI, I have not been maintaining jboss-buildmagic HEAD for some time. I had stopped after I started looking into using XSLT to reduce complexity in the system w/o loosing flexibility.
Anyways, just wanted to warn you that I am not really sure what is in HEAD at the moment... :|
