Description bht 2012-04-02 22:44:17 UTC
I am trying to re-use the IDE's JNLP file generation task on a build server but I failed to do this.

The IDE generates properties for use by the task generate-jnlp which uses a very useful custom ant task  org.netbeans.modules.javawebstart.anttasks.GenerateJnlpFileTask which is included in org-netbeans-modules-javawebstart-anttasks.jar.

One of the generated properties that this task requires is a colon-separated list of classpath elements. The name of the property is javac.classpath.

Unfortunately, using ant, it is not possible to create such a property from an ant classpath or fileset. That means that the jnlp task cannot run on a build server even if the IDE's library files are available on it.
