I found strange problem running wscompile (from Sun’s Java Web Service Developer Pack 1.6) inside Ganymede (Eclipse Version 3.4.1). The run of the wscompile Ant task produce a problem. The build script execution freezes on the wscompile task. It prints the following message on console but then nothing happens.

[wscompile] wscompile ...\env\java\1.4.2_03\jre\bin\classpath-classpath D:\workspaces\general\lib\; ... D:\workspaces\general\lib\... jar.0.5.5

In this line, the classpath of wscompile is printed.

The build script uses configured Apache Ant in version 1.6.5. I tried to start it with Java in versions 1.4.2 und Both works in Europa (Eclipse 3.3.x) but don’t work in Ganymede (Eclipse 3.4.x), except for the first run. It seems that Ganymede provides a different handling for Ant scripts. Every first start of an Ant build script produces new “External Tool Configuration” (if not already there). If this configuration already exists, wscompile task doesn’t work!

This means my build script with wscompile task works only once, every first time after deleting the “External Tool Configuration”. I could live with that if I wouldn’t need that configuration. But I need that configuration to use different java version that is the workspace default.

Do anyone know how to fix that?
Here is my task definiton.

<taskdef name="wscompile" 

and also task usage in the script

<wscompile fork="true" import="true" base="java/class" sourceBase="java/generated" verbose="true" features="documentliteral, wsi, searchschema, serializeinterfaces, explicitcontext" mapping="java/generated/META-INF/jaxrpc-mapping.xml" config="metadata/wsdl-config.xml" xSerializable="true">
		<path refid="class.path.local" />
		<path refid="class.path.ant" />
		<pathelement path="${java.class.path}" />

Comments are welcome.
