Subject Re: [Bug 1380] - I think that having conditional fails make more robust build files.
Date Fri, 06 Jul 2001 04:49:33 GMT
Are Target level conditionals being removed in Ant2?

I think Task level conditionals make much more sense on a case by case basis than Target 
level conditionals ever can.

With the conditional on fail tasks it is actually possible to write a readable build file
that checks 
to make sure you have a functioning build environment.
