Subject RE: produce list of directories with <ivy:buildlist/>?
Date Wed, 07 Jan 2009 21:30:09 GMT

Nevermind.  The problem wasn't with pathconvert... my ant target was
improperly written.  I now have it working with pathconvert.  Still don't
know how to do it with just ivy:buildlist, but not such a big deal anymore.


P.S.  Here's the ant target in case this helps anyone:

  <target name="publish-all" depends="init-ivy, clean-ivy, sync-source">
    <ivy:buildlist root="${root}" reference="publish-all-ivys-ref">
      <fileset dir="." includes="*/ivy.xml"/>
    <pathconvert property="publish-all-dirs-path">
      <mapper type="regexp" from="(.*)\\ivy\.xml" to="\1"/>
      <path refid="publish-all-ivys-ref"/>
    <subant genericantfile="common-build.xml" target="publish"
