Git Question

jGit - how to add all files to staging area

I tried in a lot of ways to clone a repo with jGit (it works).
Then, I write some archive in the repository, and tried to add all (a

git add *
,
git add -A
or something like it).. but it don't work. The files simple are not added to the staging area.

My code is like this:

FileRepositoryBuilder builder = new FileRepositoryBuilder();
Repository repository = builder.setGitDir(new File(folder))
.readEnvironment().findGitDir().setup().build();
CloneCommand clone = Git.cloneRepository();
clone.setBare(false).setCloneAllBranches(true);
clone.setDirectory(f).setURI("git@192.168.2.43:test.git");
try {
clone.call();
} catch (GitAPIException e) {
e.printStackTrace();
}
Files.write("testing it...", new File(folder + "/test2.txt"),
Charsets.UTF_8);
Git g = new Git(repository);
g.add().addFilepattern("*").call();


What am I doing wrong?
Thanks.




Exception while trying what with addFilePattern("."):

Exception in thread "main" org.eclipse.jgit.errors.NoWorkTreeException: Bare Repository has neither a working tree, nor an index
at org.eclipse.jgit.lib.Repository.getIndexFile(Repository.java:850)
at org.eclipse.jgit.dircache.DirCache.lock(DirCache.java:264)

Answer

One easy way to debug this is to look at the tests of the AddCommand in the JGit repo: AddCommandTest.java

You will see that in order to add all files the pattern "*" is never used, but "." is.
And it is used in the test function named... testAddWholeRepo()(!)

git.add().addFilepattern(".").call();

The Exception:

Exception in thread "main" org.eclipse.jgit.errors.NoWorkTreeException: 
Bare Repository has neither a working tree, nor an index

is quite explicit: you need to add file in a non-bare repo.

See test method testCloneRepository() to compare with your own clone, and see if there is any difference.
