It's a syntax element--you terminated the opening <target> tag.  Replace
<target name="get_files" /> with <target name="get_files"> and that should
work.

Good luck!

Hello Lance,
I am trying to use your suggestions from the enclosed email.  Here's my
code. AND here is the error message I get.  Why is the exec command wrong?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>

<project name="MainBuildFile" default="get_files" basedir=".">
	<target name="get_files" />
	<exec dir="${src}" executable="$C:\VSS4.0\WIN32\ss.exe" os="Windows
2000" output="dir.txt">
 		<arg value="get" />
		<arg value="$/theICE">
		<arg value="-R">
		<arg value="-I-"/>
		<arg value="-GF"/>
		<arg value="-GCC"/>
		<arg value="-GTM"/>
	</exec>	
	</target>
</project>

C:\THEICE>ant -buildfile Get2.xml
Buildfile: Get2.xml

BUILD FAILED

C:\THEICE\Get2.xml:5: Unexpected element "exec"

Subject: RE: VSS task question

Here's the problem.  Vssget calls SS.EXE directly (using
Runtime.execute()).  But vssget does not pass the -GCC and -GTM options
to SS.EXE.  GCC forces SS.EXE to only download changed files.  GTM
forces SS.EXE will set downloaded files' file date's to the last
modified date instead of the current date.  Without these options,
SS.EXE will ALWAYS get EVERY file in the tree, and will ALWAYS stamp
each file with the current date/time.
 
If you don't want this to happen, you have three choices:
1.  Wait until someone else fixes vssget.
2.  Write your own vssget (vssget's source is distributed with Ant's
source).
3.  Or use the exec task to call SS.EXE directly.  This is what I'm
doing--it works fine.  In fact the only difference using exec to call
SS.EXE and using vssget is that I have to enter a few more attributes. 
My first post shows the attributes I use to call SS.EXE through exec.
 
By using the exec task with the correct options (-GCC and -GTM), SS.EXE
will only download the most recent files.  It will still scan the entire
project tree.  But it won't actually get the files (look at the
output--if it's downloading a file it will print "Getting...", whereas
if it doesn't get the file, it will only print the filename).
 
Best regards,
Lance Peterson

This is exactly what I want, This works for most tasks, but for the
vssget (at least how I structured it) it gets the files everytime
I tried using the 
<target ... unless="some.property">
    <property name="some.property" value="true"/>
</target>
 
This two, works for other targets, but not with the vss target.  I'm
tempeted to believe there is a bug in the vssget
(as the recursive flag does not seam to matter what it is set to)

This might seem obvious but have you tried...
 
<target name="source">
    <vssget ...>
</target>
 
<target name="applet1" depends="source">
</target>
 
<target name="applet2" depends="source">
</target>
 
<target name="applet3" depends="source">
</target>
 
?
 
With this configuration, Ant will execute the source target once, no
matter which (or how many) of the applet targets are executed.  If I
understand your problem, this should correct it.  If I don't understand
let me know.

Actually I was looking for the situation that, if I have three targets
that rely on on task (say compile) that the compile is only run once
(the first time it is needed), but then the next target that depends on
compile doesn't compile it.
 
in my case, I have three applets that I need to put in to a web
application.  I need to ensure I got the pages from vss and because all
three appleets depend on the pages, my vss get pages target gets the
pages three times.
 
but thanks for advice on this.  (is still got all the files for some
reason)

If I don't want to download files every time from SourceSafe, I use the
exec task and call SS.EXE directly with the following options:

<exec executable="${vss.path}\ss.exe"> 
        <arg value="get" /> 
        <arg value="${project.path}" /> 
        <arg value="-R" /> 
        <arg value="-I-" /> 
        <arg value="-GF" /> 
        <arg value="-GCC" /> 
        <arg value="-GTM" /> 
        <arg value="-y${vss.username},${vss.password}" /> 
</exec> 

project.path is the SourceSafe project path (i.e.
"$/products/library/source"). 

-R gets files recursively, -I- turns off input. 

The combination of -GF, -GCC, and -GTM causes SS.EXE to only get a file
from SourceSafe if it has a later file date than the local copy.  SS.EXE
will still run--it will scan the project directory (recursively if -R is
set).  But it won't download a file unless it's outdated.

I'm not sure this is what you wanted...

I have a few tasks that rely on files getting from vss 
Everytime the other tasks fire, they get the files. 
How can i prevent vssget task from firing evertime?
