Subject Calling ant from a jsp (more and more...)
Date Wed, 29 Jan 2003 11:00:59 GMT

I'm new in this list. I checked out the archives looking for ways of
calling ANT from a jsp/servlet, but I didn't find the right solution.

My idea is to create an update system using ant and with a web
interface. Then, I'd like to have a javabean that encapsulates the ant
job (possible, a Project object), having "breakpoints" where current
state should be stored.

General idea: Instead of executing the whole project, the bean should
run the project step by step, showing current state as a web page, and
waiting until the user clicks on a "Next" button.

There will be also a new task that shows html forms to ask information
to the user. This task should create properties with the values entered
by the user.

Is this possible using the Ant API ?? Should I modify ANT to support the
step-by-step model ??

Thanks in advance.
