Subject Re: Need help for ["AntCall" cannot return properties]
Date Thu, 30 Oct 2003 23:22:30 GMT
I added the AntCallBack and AntFetch tasks from antelope to ant-contrib. 
AntCallBack works like AntCall, but let's you get back some properties, 
and AntFetch does the same thing for the Ant task. You'd need to get 
them out of ant-contrib's cvs, as they are not in the current release. 
Ant-Contrib is at http://ant-contrib.sourceforge.net. Alternatively, you 
can download the compiled tasks from the antelope project at 
http://antelope.sourceforge.net. The tasks are identical other than 
package name. Docs are on-line at 
http://antelope.sourceforge.net/manual/bk03.html.
