Description jerome_bouat 2008-03-17 18:55:25 UTC

I'm using Netbeans as a replacement for Visual Basic.

Thus I let the source code, the Javadoc API and the binary classes into the same folder.

However, I need to copy this folder into a shared network disk with a high latency (cross continent copy through VPN).

This latency depends on the number of files rather than on the size of the files.

I noticed that zipping the Javadoc folder would help a lot for a fast copy.

Comment 1 jerome_bouat 2008-03-21 16:27:15 UTC
Bellow is my "build.xml" Ant file:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project name="aaa" default="default" basedir=".">
    <import file="nbproject/build-impl.xml"/>
    <target name="-post-jar" depends="javadoc">
        <zip destfile="${dist.dir}/">
            <zipfileset dir="${dist.javadoc.dir}" />
        <!-- cleanup for avoiding to copy useless files on the share -->
        <delete dir="${dist.dir}/lib" />
        <delete file="${dist.dir}/README.TXT" />
        <delete dir="${build.dir}" />
        <delete dir="${dist.javadoc.dir}" />

possibility to zip would be needed probably in build-impl.xml
Comment 3 Jesse Glick 2008-09-22 23:34:22 UTC
Build script is part of j2seproject.

Probably WONTFIX; users who need this functionality can simply add a build.xml target as the reporter has shown. Good
FAQ entry.
