I am pretty new to running ant headlessly, I have created jet plugin project. now I want to run transformation with xml file as a input. But I am getting error "Could not find resource "TestProject/custom.xml".

I am using Eclipse3.3 (Europa), I have created build file that looks like:

<project name="test" default="test" >
<target name="test">
<jet.transform transformid="com.example.jet.demo" source="TestProject/custom.xml"/>

I have created java project named TestProject that contains model xml ("custom.xml on project's root")
I am using command:
eclipse -data D:\build\Workspace -application org.eclipse.ant.core.antRunner nosplash -buildfile D:\build\build.xml

I have placed my TestProject into D:\build\Workspace directory. here's the exception that occurs..

Caused by: D:\build\build.xml:3: Could not find resource "TestProject/custom.xml".

Any idea, what could be wrong?

Thanks in advance!

You are running your build in the workspace D:\build\Workspace. The
error message means that the projct TestProject cannot be found in that
workspace. You can confirm this by starting Eclipse (with a UI) on that
workspace. If you don't see TestProject, you can import it into the
workspace (File > Import ... General > Existing Projects into Workspace).

My guess is that you want to create C:\build\Workspace as part of your
headless build, and then run the JET transform. For this to work, you
need to import the referenced projects into that workspace, too.
Unfortunately, I do not know of any pre-defined Ant tasks that do this.
However, it should be fairly easy to create one. The key to importing:

1) You would need to pass the tag the location of the project in the
local files system.
2) The tag would then use
ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace().loadProjectDescription() [1]
3) To then import the project, you would create an IProject handle
using: ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace().getRoot().getProject() [2]. You'd
pass the value returned by IProjectDescription.getName().
4) Finally, use IProject.create(IProjectDescription,IProgressMonitor)
[3] to complete the import.

If you have never created a custom Ant task for Eclipse, see:
* Contributing tasks and types [4]
* Developing Ant tasks and types within Eclipse [5]

[1] loadProjectDescription -
( oc.isv/reference/api/org/eclipse/core/resources/IWorkspace.h tml#loadProjectDescription(org.eclipse.core.runtime.IPath)
[2] c.isv/reference/api/org/eclipse/core/resources/IWorkspaceRoo t.html#getProject(java.lang.String)

[3] c.isv/reference/api/org/eclipse/core/resources/IProject.html #create (org.eclipse.core.resources.IProjectDescription,%20org.eclip se.core.runtime.IProgressMonitor)

Thank you very much Paul!

After importing the project manually it works.
Now I will create custom ant task to import the projects into workspace.

Thanks once again!
