Ant input task not working? [message #64675] Tue, 29 June 2004 09:32 Go to next message
Eclipse User
Originally posted by: E.J.Spaans.inter.NL.net

Hi,

I recently upgraded from Eclipse 2.1.3 to Eclipse 3.0.
Build files used in 2.1.3 contain an input task. Running these build files
in Eclipse 3.0 results in:

BUILD FAILED:
C:\development\projects\Inknowvation\knowledgeportal_current \build\build.xml
:41: Failed to read input from Console.

The input screen shown in Eclipse 2.1.3. is not shown anymore.
I looked around a bit to find a solution, but I didn't.
Can anyone help?

EJ

You didn't read the 3.0 readme did you :-)

From the readme
(..pathToYourInstall/eclipse/readme/readme_eclipse.html#I-Pl atform-Ant
=====
No input handler supplied for <input> task when running Ant in a separate VM
By default, no input handler is supplied for the <input> task for a build
running in a separate VM. Therefore the input requests will always fail. The
user can supply an input handler using the -inputhandler argument. (bug
45484)

======

So you can create and specify your own input handler or you can set your
build to occur in the same JRE as Eclipse and you will see the familiar
input handler from 2.1.*

See the JRE tab for your Ant launch configuration.

Note: these questions are mor likely to get answered quickly if posted to
the eclipse.platform newsgroup
