Hi Shaan,

In your build file you will find
<project name="Name of your project " default="default-task-to-invoke" basedir="base-directory-from-where-to-run">


So if your base directory is C:\Documents and Settings\shaan then the build.property files default location will be the same

And for your information you need to crate the property file with key=value pairs.

If still have doubt, paste your build file contents and the problem propery.


regards,
PP

Hi Prash,


The following is my build.xml in c:/struts-training/exercise01 folder.
I am still not able to locate the build.properties file.
But the script is working fine till check point 2 marked bold in the below script.
This is the content of my environment.properties located in C:/struts-training/exercise01
********************************
struts.training.home = C:/struts-training
weblogic.lib = C:/bea812/weblogic81/server/lib
deploy.domain = C:/bea812/user_projects/domains/mydomain
*************************************************************

How is the script loading the other properties when I dont have a
build .properties anywhere ?

Hi
While looking to you task it seems that you want to copy the files form
location C:\struts-training\exercise01\src\web to location C:\struts-training\exercise01\build\web

Check that the property ${src.web.dir} is pointing to desired location.
i.e. Is C:\struts-training\exercise01\src\web this path exist... ?

Did you also read this?


If the file is not there, nothing is printed except at -verbose log level. This lets you have optional configuration files for every project, that team members can customize.
