javapackager -deploy does not include files as seen in doc

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • Resolved In Build:
      b172
    • OS:
      linux, os_x

      Description

      Take a little Test-Class:
      public class Test {
              public static void main(String[] args) {
                      System.out.println("Just a test");
              }
      }

      Compile it:
      [rli@rlinux javapackager2]$ javac Test.java

      Then create the jar file:
      javapackager -createjar -srcdir . -srcfiles Test.class -outdir input -outfile Main.jar -appclass Test

      It works:
      [rli@rlinux javapackager2]$ java -jar input/Main.jar
      Just a test

      Then make a bundle:
      [rli@rlinux javapackager2]$ javapackager -deploy -srcdir input/ -outdir output -outfile test -native image -BmainJar=Main.jar -appclass Test
      No base JDK. Package will use system JRE.
      No base JDK. Package will use system JRE.
      Creating app bundle: /home/rli/tmp/javapackager2/output/bundles/Test

      Looks, good, however:
      [rli@rlinux javapackager2]$ output/bundles/Test/Test
      Test Class Test not found.
      Test Failed to launch JVM

      Because:
      [rli@rlinux javapackager2]$ ls output/bundles/Test/app/
      Test.cfg

      There is not a single jar-file in the app-Directory.

      Only if -srcfiles Main.jar is added to the command line will the Main.jar be included into the bundle.

      However the documentation clearly states:

      -srcfiles files
          List of files in the directory specified by the -srcdir option. If omitted, all files in the directory (which is a mandatory argument in this case) will be used. Files in the list must be separated by spaces.

      So the "omitted" case seems to be not handled properly be the Linux bundler.

      The problem also occurs under OSX.

      But not so under Windows.
