Subject Re: how to abort build if cvs task fails
Date Thu, 15 Nov 2001 08:31:46 GMT
Adding attribute failOnError="true" works in the CVS version of Ant. I am not 
sure if it made it into last release of ant (thought I thought it did). You 
could try that or else grab a nightly build of ant.

shows that Finagle was right.)
