NANT for ASP.NET 2.0

P: n/a
Hi Folks

Not sure if this is the right group, if not please re-direct me to the
right one.

Here is my question
===============
When I compile my ASP.NET WEB project from VS 2005 (.NET Framework 2.0)
IDE, it works fine, but if I use NANT (Build Automation) it gives me an
error as follows:

[csc] Starting 'C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\csc .exe
(@"C:\Documents and Settings\pprabhu\Local Settings\Temp\tmpDF.tmp")'
in 'C:\xxx\WebSite2'
[csc] c:\xxx\WebSite2\Default.aspx.cs(16,9): error CS0103: The name
'TextBox1' does not exist in the current context

BUILD FAILED

I'm using NANT version - 0.85.2136.0
Also, I was being told that this works with ASP.NET 2.0 :-)
I have tried adding references to all sort of assemblies, all sorts of
folder path, but no luck

Question

Can anybody please tell me what could be the error?

Any help appreciated

Thanks

in version 2.0, web projects are no longer built with csc.exe you must use
the aspnet_compiler.exe instead. i don't think nant has an asp.net compiler
task yet. you will have to use a custom build task.

see the aspnet_compiler.exe switches

on the flip side i have nunit working fine with version 2.0.

Finally I found a work around :)

Here is the code changes I made
=====================
Change-1
~~~~~~
Used <exec> insted of <csc>

<target name="build">
<exec program =
"C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\msb uild.exe"
failonerror = "true"
verbose = "true" >
<arg value="${SolutionFilePathAndName}" />
</exec>
</target>

Change-2
~~~~~~
Added a property, pointing to my Solution File
<property name="SolutionFilePathAndName" value="C:\Projects\HR
Relocation\hrreloc\ui\hrreloc.sln" />

Change-3
~~~~~~
Got rid of rest of the stuff within <target> TAG
Note
===
Change your path for MSBuild.EXE and Solutionfile accordingly, it will work
like a charm

Thanks
