Hai All,

I am trying to lanuch the build script in WSAD. I am getting an error as "Failed to read input from console".

I am using below input tag in ANT script.

message="Version ?"
<condition property="do.stop">
<equals arg1="" arg2="${constants.tag}"/>
<fail if="do.stop">Entrez un numéro de version.</fail>

Is WSAD supports input tag for ANT script, otherwise we have any other alternative way.

Thanks and Regards,
Ramkumar .p

You're running through the IDE? I'd say there's a pretty good chance that doesn't accept console input. As an alternative, you could have the version be a property, and set it via a property file, or pass it in as a parameter to the Ant build.
