Re: [aspectj-users] Using Ant

thanks for the info. I switched to using the iajc task and pretty much coded my build.xml just like


But I changed all the plugin paths to match what is current in my eclipse plugins folder. Now when It compiles it is getting the following error

[iajc] [error] classpath error: unable to find org.aspectj.lang.JoinPoint (check that aspectjrt.jar is in your classpath)

I got the same error when I added a -lib with the full path to the aspectjrt.jar, but that gave the same error.

Thanks, Wade

Hi Wade,

The usual approach is to switch from using the 'javac' task to using
the 'iajc' task (as Neale says).  The javac task and a compiler
adapter ought to work but if your aspects are in .aj files, the
default javac task processing may not find them and pass them to

This is a separate issue from the one I emailed earlier...

I am trying to get my aspects to compile using ant.

$ ant -version
Apache Ant version 1.7.0 compiled on August 25 2008

$ ../aspectj/bin/ajc -version
AspectJ Compiler 1.6.4 (1.6.4 - Built: Thursday Apr 2, 2009 at 16:03:17 GMT)
- Eclipse Compiler 0.785_R33x, 3.3

ant command I am using

ant -lib /path/to/aspectj/lib clean install

in the build.xml file I have added
<property name="ajc"
value="org.aspectj.tools.ant.taskdefs.Ajc11CompilerAdapter" />

and my javac task looks like

<javac debug="true" srcdir="${src}" destdir="${build}" classpath="$ {cp}"
source="1.5" target="1.5">
<compilerarg compiler="${ajc}"/>

note that I just added the compilerarg...

the output from the compiling phase is
[javac] Compiling 139 source files to  ...

It builds without any error, but the aspects do not appears as class files
in the jar. Should they?

I think that I am missing some fundamental step in the process of building
outside of eclipse.
