#14051 closed defect (fixed)

ReleaseDir is not taken into account anymore for 1xProfiles

Reported by: xMartin Owned by: Rawld Gill
Priority: high Milestone: 1.7
Component: BuildSystem Version: 1.7.0b1
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:


Since [26707] a build base on a 1.x profile doesn't work anymore.

I have a profile like that:

dependencies = {
	prefixes: [
		[ "dijit", "../dijit" ]
	layers: [
			name: "dojo.js",
			dependencies: [
			name: "../../my.js",
			dependencies: [

and start the build with the following command:

./ --release --releaseDir ../../../release --releaseName myrelease --profile ../../../my.profile.js

The "dojo" layer is created correctly in "myrelease" dir but the second layer called "../../my.js" is written to the source "dojo/util" dir and not to the release dir. Additionally the ".js" suffix is missing.

Priority: normalhigh
Status: newassigned
Version: 1.7.0b1

The profile + command line above results in the release directory being release/myrelease/, with release/ a sibling of the parent of the source dojo directory (likely something like "dojotoolkit"). This, in turn, causes the layer my.js to be written in the directory release/. This is not possible to do with a backcompat profile. It can be done with the following 1.7 profile:

var profile = {


			include:["dojo/main", "dijit/Tooltip"]


(note: releaseDir could be given on the command line and removed from the profile)

This profile would be built with the command

./ -p ../../../my --releaseName myrelease -r

Unfortunately as of [26822], using the new-style profiles does not automatically include the default profile properties that are included when using an old-style profile. This needs to be fixed for 1.7.

In [26833]:

refactored default profile settings to work with new profiles as well as backcompat; made copyright handling consistent; fixes #14051; refs #14032; !strict

Replying to stadler:

Hi stadler,

Please pull from trunk and try the profile I provided. Also, take a look at This is a work in progress that will be finished by release candidate time. It should help you understand the new system.

There's a doc coming on backcompat.

fwiw, the v1.60 profiles are very janky with re to paths, always assuming that packages are siblings of dojo, always assuming util/buildscripts/ is the cwd during the build, and various ideas about what the name, dependencies, and layerDependencies properties should be in a layer (a filename or a module name). This has all been cleaned up in 1.7; but the clean up made some backcompat...this example in particular...impossible to devine into a 1.7 profile automatically. Sorry for the hassle...but it'll be better in the long run.

This works for me. Thanks. Note that the "layers" property is not yet explained in the mentioned docs.
