Subject Re: Can you get name of target to be run?
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2003 05:47:47 GMT
No.  And this has been a hotly debated topic, in fact.

Keep in mind that Ant can be run this way also:

	ant target1 target2 target3

That probably doesn't factor into why its a debatable topic, but does 
add some food for thought on it.

You could do something like this though:

	ant -Dtarget=target1

And in the default target do an <antcall> to ${target}
