Subject .Net project compile task
Date Tue, 15 Oct 2002 16:34:54 GMT
I have been working on the VisualBasicCompile task, and I had another idea
related to this. Our development team uses Visual Studio as their IDE.
Visual Studio uses and XML project file to define which files should be
included in a project, as well as external references and dependencies. In
our shop, developers check this project file in to VSS, and use it to drive
manual project builds.

I am considering building an Ant task that reads in a Visual Studio project
file, and uses it to set the parameters to call <vbc> or <csc> (or maybe
call the compiler directly). Is this something that would be useful to
include within Ant? Any gotchas I should be aware of in trying to do this?
