Extend <java> task to provide <apply>-like features

           Summary: Extend <java> task to provide <apply>-like features
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.6.1
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Core tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: shankar@cotagesoft.com


This is similar in spirit to bug 8559, but instead of extending <arg>, it would
be really nice if <java> itself provided <apply>-like features, like supporting
source and dest directories, filesets, selectors and mappers, and being able to
pass the arguments that are selected to the java argument list as arguments.

It would greatly reduce the need to write tasks in Java for each java program I
want to invoke in this way (much of which is boilerplate).
