Subject RE: Any examples of how we can simplify ant build.xml with templa tes (?)
Date Wed, 04 Feb 2004 06:15:42 GMT
Without ever done that I would try that:

parent/build.xml
- facade for the major targets (build, test, compile...) using <subant>
  <project name="Masterbuild">
      <fileset id="children" dir="*/build.xml"/>
      <target name="compile">
          <subant target="compile">
              <fileset refid="children"/>
          </subant>   
      </target>
      <target name="test">
          <subant .../>
  ...

parent/template.xml
- define common used things
  - import property files
  - define new tasks: <taskdef>, <macrodef>, <presetdef>, <scriptdef>
  - define global targets

child/build.xml
- import the template.xml
- override targets, if needed (see "Target overriding" in import´s manual)
    class Super { void meth(); }     
    class Sub 
      extends Super {          -->  <import>
        void newMeth();        -->  <target>
        void meth() {
             super.meth();     -->  <antcall target="Super.meth"/>
        }
    }
