Subject Re: Ant v. 1.4alpha usable?
Date Fri, 20 Jul 2001 06:07:54 GMT

Awgh, I hate the way Notes quotes messages. Guess I'll just have to live
with it.

You've got me convinced enough, I'll give 1.4alpha a shot. If it doesn't
work, fine, I'll send a bug report or fix it.

BTW, I found the filter task a bit lacking, you can't use token
=${} in the filter file. Changing the behaviour
required only a few lines of code, do you folks think it would be a useful

I don't use the releases much at all. Pretty much always using the current
build, including for EJB work.

Yes, you should be able to just take the EJB classes from the current CVS
and drop them into the current 1.3 build. Note that I haven't tried that to
be sure.

What I'd suggest, however, would to try out the 1.4 alpha. If it works, I'd
use it. If it doesn't it will good to let us know why since we are in the
run up to the 1.4 release. You can then use the above strategy and lastly,
if that fails, just drop back to 1.3 with the necessary fixes applied.
