Description Kelly Davis 2011-05-06 18:50:47 UTC
I am using the maven-antrun-plugin 1.6 with the <input> task and the default input handler. When I enter input, it throws a BuildException, "Failed to read input from Console". The root exception is:

java.io.IOException: Stream closed
        at java.io.BufferedInputStream.getBufIfOpen(BufferedInputStream.java:145)
        at java.io.BufferedInputStream.read(BufferedInputStream.java:308)
        at sun.nio.cs.StreamDecoder.readBytes(StreamDecoder.java:264)
        at sun.nio.cs.StreamDecoder.implRead(StreamDecoder.java:306)
        at sun.nio.cs.StreamDecoder.read(StreamDecoder.java:158)
        at java.io.InputStreamReader.read(InputStreamReader.java:167)
        at java.io.BufferedReader.fill(BufferedReader.java:136)
        at java.io.BufferedReader.readLine(BufferedReader.java:299)
        at java.io.BufferedReader.readLine(BufferedReader.java:362)

I was able to fix this issue by wrapping the input stream in KeepAliveInputStream as follows:

    public void handleInput(InputRequest request) throws BuildException {
        String prompt = getPrompt(request);
        BufferedReader r = null;
        try {
            r = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(new KeepAliveInputStream(getInputStream())));
            do {
                System.err.print(prompt + ": ");
                try {
                    String input = r.readLine();
                } catch (IOException e) {
                    throw new BuildException("Failed to read input from"
                                             + " Console.", e);
            } while (!request.isInputValid());
        } finally {
            if (r != null) {
                try {
                } catch (IOException e) {
                    throw new BuildException("Failed to close input.", e);

I am not that used to write pom.xml file. Could you provide a piece of pom.xml which reproduce the bug please ?
Comment 2 Kelly Davis 2011-06-08 12:17:30 UTC
The following pom will generate the error:

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">

                                <input message="Enter Foo Property" addproperty="foo.property" defaultvalue="FOO"/>
                                <input message="Enter Bar Property" addproperty="bar.property" defaultvalue="BAR"/>

execute 'mvn generate-sources'
Comment 3 Nicolas Lalevée 2011-07-24 11:54:32 UTC
Sorry for the late follow up, but I cannot reproduce the error. I tried with both maven 2 and maven 3. Here is what I got:

Comment 4 Kelly Davis 2011-07-26 18:33:43 UTC
Ok, sorry about that. If you run 'mvn generate-sources' it doesn't run the ant plugin. Please run it with 'mvn compile'. That should trigger the problem.
Comment 5 Nicolas Lalevée 2011-07-26 22:03:09 UTC
reproduced and fixed. Thanks for your report.
