Its actually "if prop1 is defined, then xxx will be executed."  It doesn't
matter what the value is, the property just has to have a value.  What you
may need to do is script a test of the two properties and set (or not) a
third property that the target you want to execute depends on.

Subject:  Re: Questions on Ant


What Ken suggests seems to be a kind of hack (even if it'd worked as he
suppose). Am I right there's no "right" way to do what I need? Maybe it
makes sense to modify so that a target could take a list of
comma-separated properies names and check whether all of them are true?


P.S. BTW, Ken says "if prop1 is true, xxx will be executed". Is it really
so or "prop1" should simply be set regardless of its value?

Thanks again,
