From "Alexey N. Solofnenko" <A.Solofne...@mdl.com>
Subject Re: ANT 1.7 features suggestion
Date Tue, 11 May 2004 16:09:43 GMT
Actually <if> is too wordy. A mall <target if="XXX"> is translated into

<target>
  <if>
   <isset property="XXX"/>
   <then>
....
   </then>
  </if>
</target>

Complex conditions are big. A small expression language like "XXX && 
YYY" would be much nicer.
