Subject RE: Using Ant API to retrieve task/target information
Date Tue, 01 Jun 2004 09:34:41 GMT
I think these getters arent there because we havent needed it :-)
Only the target class itself uses these information so why putting them in?
But if there is a need for having getters outside I donĀ“t see an obstacle
while
adding them ... the information are not unofficial ...

Do you need more?
