Subject xmlproperty - why no fileset support?
Date Thu, 05 Aug 2004 05:15:50 GMT

xmlproperty seems to be pretty much what I need with its support of paths
such as <path> and <classpath>.  However, said paths seem to support nested
there some slightly different syntax to use such as, for instance, <path
pathid="..."> rather than the normal <path id="...">.

Here's an example of what I'd like to have working...

<path pathid="container.dependencies.path">
<fileset dir="${lib.home}"> <include name="*.jar"/> </fileset> </path> Is this possible? If not, is there some working equivalent? Or have I hit a dead end? One other question, is the "location" attribute supposed to generate a fully qualified file path like it does with <property "${srcdir}"
location="src"/> where \${srcdir} ends up being something like
c:\path\to\build\dir\src, or is "location" merely a keyword which isn't
added to property name, but its value treated as the property value?  My
experience is the latter, but maybe I'm missing something?
