Subject Re: Ant and java frameworks

Here's an example:

    <target name="compile" depends="init">
        <ant dir="bm" target="compile" />
        <ant dir="uv" target="compile" />
        <ant dir="rh" target="compile" />

The three subdirectories above (bm, uv and rh) are the three subprojects that any project
can have.  Now, if a particular project does NOT have all three of these subprojects, the
build will fail with the code above.  I don't know enough about Ant yet to know if there's
some way I can conditionally build each subproject, if it's present.  Maybe something with
the Available task?

Adjust in what way?  How would/should Ant behave differently if one of
the three directories is present/absent?
