List of Java1.5 features to consider adding to Ant

           Summary: List of Java1.5 features to consider adding to Ant
           Product: Ant
           Version: 1.7Alpha (nightly)
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Other
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Enhancement
          Priority: Other
         Component: Optional Tasks
        AssignedTo: dev@ant.apache.org
        ReportedBy: stevel@apache.org


there is an open bugrep to add Apt Ant, but what else from the java1.5 runtime
can we patch in?

In no particular order, here are some:

-Integrate System.getEnvironment() with Environment.

-tstamp to add System.nanoTime() if someone can think of a use :)

-execute with ProcessBuilder (does it offer benefits for one-off execution?)

-use InetAddress.isReachable for an <pingable> condition

-<printf> -take a string a list of strings/numbers/properties , return a
formatted string to a property

-<javac> to add lint options, maybe -Xmaxerrors too

-<pack200> task using the java.util.jar.Pack200 package, maybe make it an option
on <jar> instead.
