Subject RE: Re: Ant call doesn't use same environment space.
Date Tue, 06 Mar 2001 22:11:45 GMT
The idea is to support drop-in build files for inside the package 
structure that will function independently of the top-level build.xml 
as well as working within that file. This will support building only a 
certain component or component set, without modification of the 
top-level file.  There are other, less elegant ways to do this, but the 
consequence is more information to be transferred to the next person 
supporting builds. I want ant to be a free-standing tool insofar as it 
may be, and not need things like batch files or system properties 
passed into the process in order for it to work.

Thanks,
John

Is there a reason why you need to do those things in the sub files 
instead
of the top-level one?
