Subject Re[2]: Best practice for numerous javac calls?
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2002 22:05:49 GMT

I have this issue when I use a <ant> to call another build file.  I
specify <ant inheritAll="false" target="sometarget" dir="/some/dir">.
I don't specify inheritRefs because it defaults to false.  Yet, when I
define a custom taskdef in the called file, I get a message saying
that I am overriding the a previous definition of a taskdef.  I had
defined it in the calling build file and ran some stuff, but since I
have inheritAll="false" and inheritRefs is false by default, why
should it be redefining anything?

I can't use any workaround in the called build file that creates a
dependency on the calling build file because the called build file
must be able to be run directly without reference to the calling
build file.  Calling the build file using <ant> is purely there for
convenience and central control over the whole build system.  Each
build file, however, is meant to be self-sufficient with no
dependencies other than common properties file which each build file
references.

Any solutions to that?
