Subject Re: exporting classpath references from inner Ant builds to outer Ant builds.
Date Sat, 25 May 2002 09:10:25 GMT
There is a patch already in bugzilla that adds <returns> functionality to <ant>
and <antcall>.

You can indicate a particular property or a set of properties (using a prefix). Assing the
value
to properties with different names if needed.

And you can have multiple <returns> elements.

Look in bugzilla.
