Subject RE: Maintaining dependencies across antcalls
Date Tue, 03 Sep 2002 15:33:22 GMT
Replicating Peter's proposal? Great!!!

Please do not forget to add if/unless/ifTrue/os/osfamily attributes please.

Also, would it work with ant-contrib's <if> (thus not requiring the
attributes mentioned above)? Like in:

<target name="foo">
  <do-something />
  <depends target="bar" />
      <istrue value="${bar-did-something}" />
      <depends target="baz" />

BTW, I find that having <isset property="x"/> and <istrue value="${x}"/> is
confusing, and the issue came up on the list at least once. Couldn't we have
simply a <istrue property="x"/> as well? --DD

Understand, you need an inner <depends target=""/> tag.

I've almost finished it (fixing a but), and will submit it soon, stay 
tuned :-)
