Subject Ant Tasks [was: Re: How to return values from targets?]
Date Thu, 17 Jul 2003 06:37:06 GMT
Thanks Dale.

I just realise that there are really alot of places to look for ant tasks
(core and add-ons).

These are the ones that I know:

http://ant.apache.org/
http://ant-contrib.sourceforge.net/
http://antelope.sourceforge.net/
http://www.oopsconsultancy.com/software/xmltask.html

Does anyone know of others? Any list of them out there?

I know that http://ant.apache.org/projects.html has some of them, but not
all...

I really hope these add-ons will slowly get added to the core so I dun have
to look so many places for documentation/binaries/etc


Regards,
Daniel

Look at the 'call', 'antfetch', and 'antcallback' tasks in antelope,
antelope.sourceforge.net. These, coupled with the 'if' and 'var' tasks
in the same distribution, will do almost what you're asking. It'll be
more like:

target A
    <call target="B"/>
    <call target="C"/>

target B
    do stuff
    <call target="D"/>
    <if name="D_value" value="true">
       do other stuff
    </if>

target C
    do stuff
    <call target="D"/>
    <if name="D_value" value="true">
       do other stuff
    </if>

target D
    do stuff
    <var name="D_value" value="true"/>
