Subject Antwort: Re: Feasibility of using ANT...
Date Mon, 01 Jul 2002 07:53:34 GMT

Hallo SCM,

Die Makefile-Welt nähert langsam aber sicher ihrem Ende zu.
Das hatte ich früher oer später zu erwarten.

Also neues SCM-Projekt: "Portierung des gemischteb Build-System -
java basierte ant und make basierte C/C++ -
auf nur eine Platform: ant"?

We recently converted from gmake (with cygwin on Windows) to the <cc>
tasks from Ant-contrib on SourceForge. This allows us to build all our
java code (75%) and the c and c++ code (25%) all from 1 build system.

To accomplish what you need with Ant will require a little work. The
<cc> tasks may require some tweaking for use on QNX and the both the
<cc> and <doxygen> tasks are not part of Ant's core.

Ant's xml build files are a joy to work with compared to Makefiles, even
our long time Makefile users have taken to Ant.
