Subject RE: Lazy evaluation of custom taskdefs
Date Tue, 19 Sep 2000 23:02:40 GMT
You need to tell <taskdef> where to find the newly compiled class

<target name="prepareTransform">
 <!--  Make sure the XSLTransformTask is available   --> 
  <mkdir dir="${build}" /> 
  <javac srcdir="${src}/com/madsie/util/xsl/XSLTransformTask.java" 
         destdir="${build}" /> 
  <taskdef name="transform" 
           classname="com.madsie.util.xsl.XSLTransformTask" >
    <classpath>
      <pathelement location="${build}" />
    </classpath>
  </taskdef>
  </target>
