(re-post from Eclipse Platform Forum http://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/t/369343/)


Hi all,

I'm trying to use the antRunner application in order to mirror some sites into my company's intranet. The setup requires to authenticate to a http proxy.

I'm using Eclipse Platform 3.7.2.


The command line is like :
$ eclipse -data ./ws -eclipse.password ./passwd -consoleLog  -noSplash \
    -application org.eclipse.ant.core.antRunner -f t.xml mirror


!SESSION 2012-08-12 00:11:43.141 -----------------------------------------------
eclipse.buildId=M20120208-0800
java.version=1.6.0_29
java.vendor=Sun Microsystems Inc.
BootLoader constants: OS=linux, ARCH=x86, WS=gtk, NL=en_US
Framework arguments:  -eclipse.password ./passwd -application org.eclipse.ant.core.antRunner -f t.xml mirror
Command-line arguments:  -os linux -ws gtk -arch x86 -data ./ws -eclipse.password ./passwd -consoleLog -application org.eclipse.ant.core.antRunner -f t.xml mirror

!ENTRY org.eclipse.core.resources 2 10035 2012-08-12 00:11:44.604
!MESSAGE The workspace exited with unsaved changes in the previous session; refreshing workspace to recover changes.
Unknown argument: -eclipse.password
Unknown target: ./passwd
Buildfile: t.xml

mirror:

...... 


In the end there is a proxy authentication error, and the process stops.

Note that starting the UI with -eclipse.password ./passwd allows the eclipse instance to connect over the proxy.

Why is the parameter -eclipse.pasword reported as unknown ?
Also, the message "Unknown target: ./passwd" indicates that actually these parameters are interpreted by antRunner, and not eqinox.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

In fact, the problem is : How to pass http proxy credentials to p2 for mirroring, when running as an ant task ?

Is there a known preferred way ?

Thanks,
Vlad

This is a known limitation in the Ant tasks being provided.
