Subject How do I include common targets from an external file?
Date Thu, 10 May 2001 16:16:41 GMT
I've seen in a previous post the following way of "including" targets from
an external file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE project [
    <!ENTITY commonTargets SYSTEM "../build-calls.xml">
]>

I put an "init" target in the build-calls.xml and put the above in a
build.xml file.  My default target (set) depends on the "init" target but
when I execute ant I get 
BUILD FAILED

Target 'init' does not exist in this project.  It is used from target 'set'.

Is there a way to get this to work?

Thanks
