Subject RE: Build.xml question
Date Thu, 25 Jan 2001 16:03:30 GMT
Actually I just tried and it doesnt work. However,

The reason for my second question was that I'm writing (in spare time) a
makefile generator which computes dependencies from java classes' constant
pool, as both MMake and Makify dont generate the kind of makefile tree I
need to control large projects. 

But of course such information contains circular deps - and when creating
the target/dependents relation I'm forced to chose arbitrarily one way,
resulting in weaker construction properties.

Thanks to you both, however

I think that Stefan thought you mean a circular Java dependency.  I wouldn't
recommend circular <target> dependencies.
