I am using MailLogger for my nightly build for sending a mail with status.
I use something like this,

/vobs/pub/apache-ant-1.6.1/bin/ant -logger -buildfile /vobs/prof/custom-applications/TBM/nightly_build/call-review.xml -DMailLogger.failure.subject="$failure" -DMailLogger.success.subject="$success" -logfile /vobs/prof/custom-applications/TBM/nightly_build/review-status.log

it works fine.

But i need a way to add one more extra message to the end of the body of the mail i send.

But Content of the mail is taken by the log file ,declared as last line.
(-logfile vobs/prof/custom-applications/TBM/nightly_build/review-status.log)

I cannot add any thing to that file because it is created after each build and overrides preveios information.

Is there any way to add extra information to my mail body (not to mail subject, etc ..)? like MailLogger.message= .

here is my property file i use.



In my Struts front end.....

i get a collcetin of data from database and populate a table with them.
Each raw has a radio button associated.when one raw is selected by clicking the radio button and click another button called "edit" will appears a new raw with fields enabling to edit and those fields should alredy populated with corresponding values of the selected raw.

I need a way to identify a raw seperately and populate that newly created raw with those data in that selected raw.

thanks a lot

I was able to use jaas NTLogin authentication successfully for my project.
For the moment it will ask user for userName & password.

But because user is already login to the matchine (intranet) login again seems unnecessary.

I need a way to use those credentials without login again.
(i found out its callre "Single signOn")

it is TimeZone.getAvailableIDs() method

i am getting timeZone as Asia/Colombo.
17 years ago

calendar.set(year , month , day , hour , minute , second);
TimeZone timeZone = null;

if ((timezone != null) && (!(timezone.toString().equals(""))))
timeZone = TimeZone.getTimeZone(timezone);

if (!timezone.equalsIgnoreCase(timeZone.getID()))
String msg = MPWAUtils.getLogMessage(
throw new InvalidParameterException(

log.debug("time zone " + timeZone);
log.debug("time zone after set in Calendar " + timeZone);
//Generate TimeStamp from Calendar
timeStamp = new Timestamp(calendar.getTime().getTime());

i use above code to check any entered time zone is valid.

i need to check its validity and throw an exception if it is wrong timeZone.

but i dont want the time zone to be converted to default one.

and i need to get all available time zones in the world.

currently TimeZOne.getAvailableZones() will not get all of them\

17 years ago

earlier i used normal html forms. eg...<form name="customize" method="post" onsubmit="checkSubmit()">

then when i insert any struts <html:...> tags (for example <html:text> in to that form it dosnt display.or error is given.

but if i change the normal form in to struts form the problom solved.
it displays without problom.
but whan i use struts forms i can use only one action for a form.

but still i need a way to use normal html forms.
beause then i can only use more than one action in a form.

i need a way to handle multiple actions within a one form (normal html form)and use struts tags .not struts forms.

help me...

IN MY STRUTS PROJECT................

i used struts html forms with multiple buttons each should trigger different methods..but same action.

how do i seperately identify which button was clicked and excute appropriate method.

it is better to have a way to identify them using java script.
passing parameter or something like that.

For my STRUTS PROJECT....I have to connect to a database using DAOs.
I used two layerse called DAO (data access objects) and "service" layer where business logic is reside.i used DTO (datatarnsfer objects) for transfer data from frountend to backend.

later i add another layer between frount and service layer called delegate layer to redue coupling.

Actions-->delegate--> service-->DAO

my problom is what kind of methods i have to use in these layerse.
do i have to use more specific methods at delegate layer, and fewer and 'more general' ones at the DAO or othr way round?
