Subject Poor support for selectors
Date Fri, 12 Mar 2004 13:00:10 GMT

I need to construct a fileset using rules a little bit out of the
ordinary
and I an having a very hard time trying to do it in ANT.

What I need is to be able to match filenames using egexp rules for the
filename.
The only regexp things we have for selectors looks at the content of the
file,
and the only things to select of filenames, use ANT's filename
expressions.

We do not provide either a scriptselector (like we provide a script
filter)
neither. 

Shall we try to close some of this gaps in 1.6.x? Or shall we wait for
1.7 and the new role based code.

I think one thing we should do in 1.7 is take a look at the all the core
features: filters, mappers, selectors, conditions, etc. And make sure we
provide simillar strength across the board (by prviding scriptXXX for
all) at a minimum.

Comments?
