Should create a ANT based parameter passing framework.

           Summary: Should create a ANT based parameter passing framework.
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.1
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: cp1965@ROGERS.com


I want to suggest that you create a separate framework for passing parameters 
to Java application programs based on ANT syntax.  ANT resolved the parameter 
passing to Java applications with tasks. The framework that I am suggesting 
would allow Java programmers to use the same syntax to get complex parameters 
from a text file.  The ANT task syntax would be used in the text file.  

I want to stress that the new framework would be independent of ANT.  It would 
simply give users an additional way to retrieve data from text files.  The path 
like structures would be particularly useful.

The parameter passing framework should complement the Jakarta CLI framework for 
command-line parameter retrieval.

Colbert Philippe
