Subject [jira] [Created] (EASYANT-60) Allow definition of path in ivy module files

------------------------------------

             Summary: Allow definition of path in ivy module files
                 Key: EASYANT-60
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/EASYANT-60
             Project: EasyAnt
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Core
    Affects Versions: 0.9
            Reporter: Jérôme Leroux
            Priority: Minor


Currently, in ea:build tags we can define properties with ea:property to customize the definition
of the module to build.
It would be convenient to allow the definition of path with ea:path directly in these module
files.

I don't know if this kind of feature respect the philosophy of EasyAnt. EasyAnt build system
is strongly based on naming convention for the definition of the files to compile. Even if
this is very convenient for most of the projects, this does not permit to compile a project
with sources dispatched in several folder.

Currently, the solution is to write an Ant file above the module file to define the path.
The definition of a path directly in the ivy module can address this kind of issues easi(ant)ly.

The implementation may not be as trivial as definition of properties. I know that the propagation
of data types in Ant may be a little tricky.
