Subject AW: commons dev list CVS component
Date Tue, 09 Aug 2005 09:42:49 GMT
ATM tasks and types are declared via taskdefs/default.properties and types/default.properties.
Could we extend that mechanism to allow an AntLib-URI?

taskdefs/default.properties
----------------------------------------------------
# standard ant tasks
mkdir=org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.Mkdir
javac=org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.Javac 
...
# AntLib's
core=antlib:org.apache.ant.antlib.cvs
core=antlib:org.apache.ant.antlib.script
core=antlib:org.apache.ant.antlib.perforce
...
# Standard external
xmlns:ac=antlib:net.sf.antcontrib
...
