Subject RE: Ant and XSLT [was: Classpath outside of javac?]
Date Fri, 09 Jul 2004 12:07:02 GMT
Jan Materne posted this IBM article to the list a few months ago.

::: Enhance Ant with XSL transformations :::
Ant is a powerful tool for scripting build processes. When combined 
with XSLT, Ant's power and flexibility increase dramatically.  Here, 
IBM developer Jim Creasman explains and illustrates this concept using 
real world examples from his previous experience.

Anyone know any sites that may have info (tutorials etc) about
generating ant build files using xslt?

Thanks for the info!

Why not use a traditional classpath instead ? I'm pretty sure you can
make ant understand a classpath in a.jar:b.jar... form.

Alternatively you can use a xml file as config file and generate from it
an ant build.xml using xslt. All the for-each loops you want and then
