Subject Re: Handling exceptions with 'ant' task
Date Thu, 06 Mar 2003 23:58:28 GMT
See the try/catch/finally task packaged with Antelope 
(http://antelope.sourceforge.net). Then you can do:

<project name="Parent Ant Script" default="usage" basedir=".">
       .
       .
       .
    <!-- Run these Canoo tests -->
    <target name="test">
	<try break="no">
        	<ant antfile="test1.xml"/>
        	<ant antfile="test2.xml"/>
		<catch>
			<!-- do other processing here -->
		</catch>
	</try>
         .
         .
         .
    </target>
       .
       .
       .
</project>

The break="no" means to continue with test2 even if test1 fails, which 
is handy for what you are doing. The catch block will execute for each 
failed task.

Documentation for the "try" task is at: 
http://antelope.sourceforge.net/manual/bk03ch07.html
