Subject Re: packages compiled in order?
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2002 01:27:58 GMT
when im compiling my project i want to have a number of differnet levels of
code, each level only depending on all packages compiled before it. i dont
want code in one package referencing code in a second package and code in
the second package referencing code in the first. with makefiles you could
enforce it by compiling all packages in a predefined order so any circular
references would through a build error.

also i would like to add ant command line options, such as logging and debug
options to the build file rather than have to type them all in each time im
executing ant. i couldnt find anything in the manual.
