Subject RE: Passing classpath information between build scripts
Date Thu, 14 Nov 2002 15:27:25 GMT
Actually, I started writing it the other way around, but then changed my
mind. I think it makes more sense (and is more Ant-like) to have the most
specific build script augment the common-classpath, rather than the
common-classpath be modified by the specific one (which resembles
derivation, with some kind of template method implemented by the specific
script to return the specific part expected by the common script).

Am I making sense to you? If you don't mind posting what you've really done
so I can compare the two approaches, I'd appreciate (just out of curiosity,
and to know if I understood you correctly).

And of course, as was pointed out, you should probably explicitly pass down
the common-classpath with a nested <reference> in <ant> ;-) Cheers, --DD

Dominique,

I think you example is backwards from what I described.
Never-the-less, it is similar to what I'm looking for, except
I can't get the refid passed from one build script to another.
Have you gotten this to work?

Dave.
