unexpected char: '\' while running hibernate-distribution project whereever basedir used in gmaven script used. Because in windows environment \ but script is not accepting when the path \. So it has to be converted into unix-style before using project.basedir
Hibernate 3.6 Windows Environment
I have taken hibernate 3.6 for development using windows environment, when i run clean build, it will fail while execution of script in hibernate distribution as \ in windows. I have fixed the problem and need to release this in patch. So i created this issue. Need to know(steps) how to release as patch?
if then, i would suggest you just run "mvn clean install -DdisableDistribution=true", this will not active "hibernate-documentation" nor "hibernate-distribution" modules, and these two do not affect development (actually they're only useful when release hibernate)
and even we fix this issue, you will run into another environment issue
since, hibernate-documentation use jdocbook plugin to generate documents from docbook and also doing translation, but unforutunally, this translation task depends on some linux tool which are not available on windows
How you are saying? Because unix-style format is supported.Just I tried to fix so that I can start working issues.
Will it be problem if patch the fix?
well, what i was saying is even we fix this path separator issue (btw, thanks for reporting this), you will hit another issue when generating documents
and, as i said, this issue does not stop you start working issues (not hibernate release issue, but hibernate functional issue) by adding this property -DdisableDistribution=true
the only problem to patch this fix is we don't have a windows environment...
btw, do you have a patch for this issue?
