./devel/apache-ant, Apache Projects Java-Based make(1) replacement

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.10.1, Package name: apache-ant-1.10.1, Maintainer: tonio

Ant is a Java based build tool. In theory it is kind of like
"make" without make's wrinkles and with the full portability
of pure java code.

Ant uses XML to specify build actions to be taken, and new
build actions are implemented in Java.

Update apache-ant to 1.10.1

Changes from Ant 1.10.0 TO Ant 1.10.1

Fixed bugs:

 * Ant 1.10.0 made Path#systemClasspath final which broke the Eclipse
   Bugzilla Report 60582

 * the wrapper script still didn't work on Solaris 10, but worked on
   Solaris 11.
   The "fixed" script should work in most cases but will not preserve
   newlines present in command line arguments.
   Bugzilla Report 60562

Other changes:

 * new tasks <xz> and <unxz> and resource <xzresource> for XZ
   compression. Also the compression attribute of <tar>/<untar> now
   accepts "xz" as valid value.
   The tasks and type are contained in the new ant-xz.jar and require
   the library XZ for Java to be on the CLASSPATH.

Updated apache-ant to 1.10.0.

Changes from Ant 1.9.7 TO Ant 1.10.0

Changes that could break older environments:

 * Ant 1.10.x requires Java8 or newer at compile or build time.
   The 1.9.x series wil stay compatible with Java5.

 * The <apt> task has been removed since apt itself has been removed
   with Java8.

 * <fileset>/<zipfileset>/<tarfileset> exhibited undefined
   behavior when both the dir and file attribute have been used on the
   same instance. This will now cause the build to fail.
   Bugzilla Report 59402

 * <native2ascii> will default to the builtin implementation on Java8
   as well (sun isn't available for Java9+ anyway).

 * The ant.java.version property will now hold the value "9" rather
   than "1.9" if running on Java 9.

 * <rmic> will no longer allow the -Xnew option (or xmic compiler) to
   be used when running on Java 9 since this option has been removed.
   Bugzilla Report 59906

 * <javah> will default to the "forking" implementation on Java8
   as well.

Fixed bugs:

 * setDynamicAttribute on MacroInstance now lower-cases the attribute
   name in order to allow users of the API to use the attributes names
   they have specified.
   Bugzilla Report 59339

 * <get>'s quiet attribute was broken, it didn't suppress any messages.
   Bugzilla Report 59379

 * <zip>'s check whether an archive is already up-to-date failed on
   NTFS filesystems and re-created archives more often than necessary.
   Bugzilla Report 59562

 * AntClassLoader didn't delegate to the parent loader for classes in
   the "jdk" package or one of its subpackages. This hierarchy has
   been introduced with Java 7.
   Bugzilla Report 59556

 * The ant wrapper script used on Unix-like operating systems only
   worked on OSes where sed is GNU sed.
   Bugzilla Report 59898

 * <touch>'s default pattern as well as the default patterns used by
   the <date> (resource) selectors depended on the JDK being used - or
   rather the locale provider being used and the default locale
   provider changed with Java 9.
   They are now fixed and the documentation has been updated to
   reflect the real patterns used rather than a non-formal description
   of the expected format.
   Bugzilla Report 59909

 * Clarified the documentation of <get>'s retries attribute.
   Bugzilla Report 59930

 * The ant wrapper script failed if backticks were passed on the
   command line.
   Bugzilla Report 60150, 59445

 * The report generated by <junitreport> could contain duplicate
   characters in stack traces.
   Bugzilla Report 58661

Other changes:

 * New file selectors <executable>, <symlink> and <ownedBy>.

 * New task <setpermissions> that provides the ability to set POSIX
   compatible permssions via NIO's PosixFilePermission

 * <junit> now initializes the cause of the AssertionFailedError when
   converting from AssertionError.
   Bugzilla Report 58982

 * <scp> now supports compression via the optional compressed attribute.
   Bugzilla Report 47552

 * <junit> now supports JDK9 modules
   Github Pull Request #18

 * a new implementation "builtin" has been added to \ 
<native2ascii> and
   is the default when running on JDK9+ since the tool itself has been
   removed from the JDK.
   Bugzilla Report 59855

 * added a new <native2asciifilter> filter that can perform non-ASCII
   to Unicode-escape conversions.

 * <rmic> defaults to the "forking" compiler on JDK 9+ as the
   implementation class of rmic is not exported by its containing
   module and thus not accessible to Ant without applying -XaddExports
   Bugzilla Report 59860

 * a new implementation "forking" has been added to <javah> and is
   used as default when running on JDK9.

 * support for javac's -h switch has been added with the
   nativeheaderdir attribute.
   Bugzilla Report 59905

 * it is now possible to set features of the TraX factory used by <xslt>
   and <junitreport>.

 * it is now possible to use references to Ant types and classloaders
   built around Ant <path>s as values for TraX factory attributes.

 * AntClassLoader and its subclasses register themselves as parallel

 * <junitreport> now enables the feature
   http://www.oracle.com/xml/jaxp/properti … nFunctions
   when run on Java 9 so the redirect extension function can be used
   if when a SecurityManager is active.

Log message:
Update apache-ant to 1.9.7.

Changes from Ant 1.9.6 TO Ant 1.9.7

Changes that could break older environments:

 * <exec> and <apply> used to ignore the dir attribute if it was the
   same as the current working directory.  They now no longer do,
   which changes the behavior for vmlauncher="false" which would have
   used the project's basedir rather than the current working
   directory in that case.
   Bugzilla Report 58555

Fixed bugs:

 * ZipOutputStream could cause an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException when
   adding entries with comments.  This never happens when using Ant as
   a build tool but may affect users using Ant's zip package as a

 * <gunzip> and <bunzip2> didn't work for non-filesystem resources.

 * <jar> ignored the zip64Mode attribute when creating manifest-only
   jars.  This resulted in jar files that couldn't be read by Java5.
   Bugzilla Report 58428

 * <untar> will now detect GNU tar longname/link records even if they
   don't use the names used by GNU tar itself.  star is known to
   create archives of that kind.

 * <script> could fail to find javax.script on JDK9 with Jigsaw.
   Bugzilla Report 58271

 * <import> sometimes failed to normalize file names which could lead
   to files getting imported twice which in turn could lead to targets
   getting executed twice.
   Bugzilla Report 58886

 * TarInputStream now properly extraxt directory entries with a
   non-zero size.

 * <union> would drop file resources pointing to the same file but
   using different names.
   Bugzilla Report 57965

 * <replace>'s result was undefined when using the replacefilterfile
   attribute and some keys inside the properties files have been
   substrings of other keys. Keys are now sorted by descending size.
   Bugzilla Report 58997

 * Ant fails to run when arguments contain double-quote character.
   Bugzilla Report 58898

 * Ant fails to run if ANT_HOME contains a double-quote character.
   Bugzilla Report 58874

 * Definer's way to parse URLs from classloader breaks with
   recent Java 9 builds (b108).
   Bugzilla Report 59130

 * <ant> and <antcall> now preserve the ext status set by an <exit>
   Bugzilla Report 59228

Other changes:

 * <scp> now supports (filesystem-only) resource collections in
   addition to filesets.
   Bugzilla Report 50769

 * The <http> condition has a new optional attribute followRedirects.
   Bugzilla Report 58840

 * <java> now supports Java9 modules.

 * <javac> now supports Java9 modules.

 * <sshexec> and <scp> have two new attributes serverAliveInterval and
   serverAliveCountMax that can be used to keep a intermediaries from
   closing idle connections.

Update to 1.9.5:

Changes from Ant 1.9.4 TO Ant 1.9.5

Changes that could break older environments:

 * The ReplaceTokens filter can now use token-separators longer than
   one character.  This means it can be used to replace mustache-style
   {{patterns}} and similar templates.  This is going to break code
   that invokes the setters on ReplaceTokens via the Java API as their
   parameters have been changed from char to String.  It may also
   break build files that specified multi character tokens and relied
   on Ant silently ignoring all but the first character.
   Bugzilla Report 56584

 * The changes that added <get>'s support for gzip encoding
   automatically uncompressed content that would not have been touched
   before - like when downloading .tar.gz files.  A new flag has been
   added to control the behavior and its default will make <get> work
   as it did in 1.9.3.  I.e. if you want it to work like 1.9.4
   you have to explicitly set tryGzipEncoding to true.
   Bugzilla Report 57048

Fixed bugs:

 * TarArchiveInputStream failed to read archives with empty gid/uid
   Bugzilla Report 56641

 * TarArchiveInputStream could throw IOException when reading PAX
   headers from a "slow" InputStream.

 * XMLJunitResultFormatter could throw NullPointerException if Java
   cannot determine the local hostname.
   Bugzilla Report 56593

 * URLResource#getLastModified tried to access the connection to the
   URL without making sure it was established, potentially leading to
   a NullPointerException when using FTP.
   Bugzilla Report 56873

 * Long-Name and -link or PAX-header entries in TAR archives
   always had the current time as last modfication time, creating
   archives that are different at the byte level each time an
   archive was built.

 * runant.py should now work as well when the path of the Java executable
   contains spaces.
   github pull request #1

 * <junitreport> now supports nested <classpath> and <factory> \ 
   Bugzilla Report 47002

 * complete-ant-cmd.pl now also knows about the -file option.
   Bugzilla Report 57371

 * the br-replace template inside the XSLT stylesheets used by
   <junitreport> could cause stack overflows or out-of-memory errors
   when applied to big outputs.
   Bugzilla Report 57341

 * removed spurious warning about unclosed ZipFiles when reading the
   archive failed.
   Port of https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COMPRESS-297

 * FileUtils.rename which is used by several tasks can throw a
   NullPointerException if the "normal" renameTo operation fails and
   an exception occurs while rename falls back to copying and deleting
   the file.
   Bugzilla Report 57533

 * complete-ant-cmd.pl would incorrectly suggest words from the build
   file description.
   Bugzilla Report 51931

 * complete-ant-cmd.pl now also completes tasks without a description.
   Bugzilla Report 57542

 * LocalPropertyStack could run into ConcurrentModificationException
   when tasks spawned new child threads that accessed the properties.
   Bugzilla Report 55074

 * TarEntry's constructor with a File and a String arg didn't
   normalize the name.

 * Between 1.8.4 and 1.9.0 TarInputStream started to parse file
   names using the platform's default encoding rather than as ASCII.
   This has been a breaking change that has never been marked as such
   (in fact it went unnoticed).  In order to allow <untar> and
   <tarfileset> to work on platforms who's encoding doesn't match the
   encoding of file names inside the archive, both now support
   encoding attributes.
   The attribute has also been added to <tar> for symmetry.

 * it is now possible to provide proxy configuration to signjar
   when using the timestamped authority.

 * complete-ant-cmd.pl now also analyzes the ANT_ARGS environment
   Bugzilla Report 57371

 * ported some of the write-optimization of Commons Compress 1.10 to
   the ZIP package

 * adapted unit tests to Java9 and added "javac1.9" as valid option
   for javac's compiler attribute.

 * performance improvements for <intersect>

Update to 1.9.4. Add comment to patch.

Changes from Ant 1.9.3 TO Ant 1.9.4

Changes that could break older environments:

 * the prefixValues attribute of <property> didn't work as expected
   when set to false (the default).
   It is quite likely existing build files relied on the wrong
   behavior and expect Ant to resolve the value side against the
   properties defined in the property file itself - these build files
   must now explicitly set the prefixValues attribute to true.
   Bugzilla Report 54769

 * when matching an entry of a zip/tarfileset against a pattern a
   leading slash will be stripped from the entry name.  Most archives
   don't contain paths with leading slashes anyway.
   This may cause include/exclude patterns that start with a / to stop
   matching anything.  Such patterns only used to work by accident and
   only on platforms with multiple file system roots.
   Bugzilla Report 53949

 * DirectoryScanner and thus fileset/dirset will now silently drop all
   filesystem objects that are neither files nor directories according
   to java.io.File.  This prevents Ant from reading named pipes which
   might lead to blocking or other undefined behavior.
   Bugzilla Report 56149

 * BuildFileTest and BaseSelectorTest have both been deprecated in
   favour of BuildFileRule and BaseSelectorRule respectively, and the
   tests that previously extended these base tests have been converted to
   JUnit 4 tests using the new "rule"s. Any external test that sub-classed
   a test in the Ant workspace, rather than BuildFileTest, will need
   changed to either use JUnit4's annotations, or be modified to
   extend BuildFileTest directly. This will not affect any tests that are
   being executed by Ant's junit or batchtest tasks that are not specifically
   testing Ant's code.

Fixed bugs:

 * <import>/<include> failed when the importing file was loaded from an
   URI or a jar and it imported a file from the local file system via
   an absolute path.
   Bugzilla Report 50953

 * <import> could import the same resource twice when imported via
   different resource types.
   Bugzilla Report 55097

 * several calls to File#mkdirs could fall victim to a race condition
   where another thread already created the same directory.
   Bugzilla Report 55290

 * <manifestclasspath> created '/' rather than './' for the parent
   directory of the given jarfile.

 * <javadoc> caused a NullPointerException when no destdir was set.

   manifest or manifest attribute.
   Bugzilla Report 54171

 * reading of compiler args has become more defensive
   Bugzilla Report 53754

 * <copy> without force="true" would not only fail to overwrite a
   read-only file as expected but also remove the existing file.
   Bugzilla Report 53095

 * <delete removeNotFollowedSymlinks="true"> would remove symbolic
   links to not-included files.  It will still delete symlinks to
   directories that would have been followed even if they are not
   explicitly included.  exclude-Patterns can still be used to
   preserve symbolic links.
   Bugzilla Report 53959

 * Sometimes copy-operations using NIO FileChannels fail.  Ant will
   now try to use a Stream based copy operation as fallback when the
   Channel based copy fails.
   Bugzilla Reports 53102 and 54397

 * Javadoc.postProcessGeneratedJavadocs() fails for Classes that
   extend Javadoc

 * TarInputStream will now read archives created by tar
   implementations that encode big numbers by not adding a trailing

 * the isExists() method of URLResource returned false positives for
   HTTP and FTP URLs.

 * initial support for Java 1.9

 * <sshexec> can optionally pass System.in to the remote process

 * <sshexec> now supports capturing error output of the executed
   process and setting a property from the return code.

 * <redirector> has a new attribute binaryOutput that prevents Ant
   from splitting the output into lines.  This prevents binary output
   from being corrupted but may lead to error and normal output being
   mixed up.
