Subject Re: antcall task problems when calling ant from java
Date Thu, 20 Nov 2003 15:44:03 GMT
Looking at:
src/testcases/org/apache/tools/ant/BuildTestFile.java
one needs to init the project and set the user property ant.file as well:
project.init();
project.setUserProperty( "ant.file" , new File(filename).getAbsolutePath());
