Description Jesse Glick 2010-01-30 17:57:09 UTC
If you add to a j2seproject's build.xml:

    <target name="test" depends="clean,compile-test"/>

and Alt-F6, the build fails with:

Compiling 2 source files to build/classes
javac: directory not found: build/generated-sources/ap-source-output
Usage: javac <options> <source files>
use -help for a list of possible options
nbproject/build-impl.xml:485: The following error occurred while executing this line:
nbproject/build-impl.xml:236: Compile failed; see the compiler error output for details.

Before the recent AP work, this ran fine.

Workaround is to instead write:

    <target name="test">
        <antcall target="clean"/>
        <antcall target="compile-test"/>

Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201002040200* on (upload may still be in progress)
User: Jan Lahoda <>
Log: #180048, #180033, #180034: improving the build-impl.xml (and related parts) to handle processorpath with spaces, run APs in tests that are defined in src folders, etc.
Comment 2 Jan Lahoda 2010-02-08 05:48:44 UTC
Should be OK now.
