[groovy-dev] Re: [gant-user] Gant 1.7.0 on 64-bit Win 7
I have taken the liberty of circulating this very widely since I think
it is a an issue that affects the whole Groovy milieu.
I now use only Ubuntu (mostly), Mac OS X (sometimes), and Solaris
(occasionally), and have no Windows capability, not even using
VirtualBox on Ubuntu. I am therefore not in a position to test, try or
experiment with the Gant Windows launch scripts. I appreciate that
there are many out there who do use Windows and actually want them to
work, I'm afraid some of those people will have to provide the love to
the Windows specific components of Gant.
In fact, the Gant launch scripts are very minor variations of the Groovy
ones -- and I think Gradle is more or less in the same boat. I am
guessing that either the problems are in the few minor variations (and
hence Gant specific) or they affect all the Groovy-related systems.
I wonder if there needs to be a "cross-cutting" launch scripts activity
(both for the Posix shell scripts and the Windows batch files) that
works in harmony with the native launcher and provides consistent and
working launch scripts for any and all Groovy-related systems?
