Re: [wtp-dev] Please give it a try -> WTP Bach Build instructions

Hi Helen,

Thank you for documenting the build.  I tried your instructions on a SUSE Linux 10.1. Here is as far as I could get I took some notes.  I will try more and report :-)


Just a personal preference - But I think it would be better to call it local builds as opposed to batch builds

Step 1)  Do I need JDK 1.5 or 1.4?   It would be good to clarify why they are both needed.
              It would be better to say 2.0.x stream requires...

Step 2)  The instructions assume that the build machine is a linux box. I think it would be quite hard ro run it elsewhere.  It would be good to make a note of that and maybe provide pointers for people who would like to try to build it on windows (i.e get cvs, unzip etc, put it on your path etc.)  Of course they will have to convert all the shell scripts.

Step 3) Checkout  failed as described on the wiki

cvs [export aborted]: absolute pathnames invalid for server (specified `/home/ndai/wtp-build

needed to use a relative path:

cd /home/ndai/wtp-build
 cvs -Q -f -d :pserver:anonymous@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx:/cvsroot/webtools export -d ./releng.control -r HEAD webtools.releng/releng.control

Step 4)  I did copy the localBuild files to ../local-props made the mods  - I was under the impression that I needed to copy commonVariations.shsource but I realized later it was not the case.

Step 5) is not executable when you export from cvs, need to make it executable (chmod +x)

And running the command caused an error message:

./ line 17: commonVariations.shsource: No such file or directory

Checking the file, I defined the environment variable RELENG_CONTROL and got a little further but ended with other error messages  (primarily complaining about Xvfb - and Java Home

Hi there,

Here's some instructions on how to setup a WTP batch build locally. Please 
give it a try and see if these instructions work on your local box, and 
any feedback is welcome (feel free to make updates on the wiki directly).
Please post questions on wtp-releng for any clarifications.  Thank you!
