Subject ANT -> ANTCALL or something Similar [Long and Ugly]
Date Thu, 03 May 2001 20:40:38 GMT
With most automated builds written in perl it is possible to break the build
up into several portions. (e.g. Build, Package, Ship, Deploy)

This leads me to ask the following Newbie questions:

1. Assuming that I have a principal build.xml file that performs the build
and even creates the directory structure that I will copy/distribute
internally. How would I call a distribution.xml file that would contain the
move/copy functions?

2. How would I pass init variables from one .xml to the next "called" .xml

3. The log file that I'm generating via ant -logfile function is not
actually closed out by the time I'm ready to distribute when I use the "all
in one" approach with my build.xml file. If I can use a build.xml file that
calls a compile.xml and then a distribute.xml file, I would be able to
include the completed logfile with my distribution. Currently, I am using a
cmd shell in WinNT to do this, but would like to keep it fairly platform

Any pointers would be helpful.. Thanks!

Is there anyway to suppress the Subtargets when doing ant -projecthelp.  We
use a lot of intermediate subtargets that make the help less than useful
when it scrolls off the screen.
