Subject RE: command line args to ANT
Date Tue, 25 May 2004 23:20:04 GMT
You would need to run ant with -D option like this...

ant -DclassToRun=blah

Then in your build.xml create a target like this one...

<target name="setclass" unless="classToRun">
	<property name="classToRun" value="defaultClass"/>
<target/>

Then use the depends attribute on another target to run this target first.
