Subject Including files in build files
Date Fri, 05 Jul 2002 14:48:15 GMT
Hello everybody
I'm about to prt existing Makefiles to Ant build scripts and came across
some problems:

My Makefiles all include a common include file with common settings and
targets for all my independent sub-projects. I'm quite happy with that
concept and therefore would like to know if there is a similar feature in
Ant too. I've read something in the FAQs that I could perform this the
XML-way. But this looks pretty nasty to me, keeping in mind that the reason
for using common include files is to make the actual build scripts very,
very simple.

Is there a built-in property providing the current target? This is nice for
recursive propagation without writing indivual targets.

Can I refer to environment variables?
