Hi,

I like ant and use it in all projects. I use it often and find one its aspect as
annoying - it takes too much time to start. I know, one big problem is JVM,
second is parsing of XML file. But there is one solution, which would help a
lot: provide interactive interface.

My use case:

I develop web application and modify some files. Then I run ant target to deploy
them. Then I load a page in browser. I find some misspelling so I modify source
code, deploy via ant and then reload page. Last sentence takes 10 second in
total, 7 seconds of it is taken by ant, which simply copies the file from one
directory to another.

I would love to be able to run ant in interactive mode.

ant -interactive
>deploy
Copying 1 file to /home/literakl/abc/deploy/WEB-INF/templates
SUCCESS
>deploy
Copying 2 file to /home/literakl/abc/deploy/WEB-INF/templates
SUCCESS
>deploy
SUCCESS

This would save me lot of time. What do you think? It would be great for cases,
when you run some target periodically or very often ...

Sincerelly

Leo
