Subject How use a classifier with the Ant tasks? (was Re: Classifier frustration)
Date Thu, 17 Apr 2008 07:26:58 GMT
I'll try this again without the long folksy preliminaries (see copied 
below).

I need to get an artifact that uses a M2 classifier.  How do I do that 
using the Ivy Ant tasks?

Thanks!

Jim
