have you tried setting inheritall to true on your other <antcall>
instances?

Hi,

I tried with the XML file as well.

BUILD FAILED
D:\deepak\buildProcess_2\_lib\build\apache-forrest-0.5.1-bin\forrest.build.x
ml:38:
taskdef class  cannot be found

Total time: 1 second

D:\deepak\buildProcess_2\logging>ant -version
Apache Ant version 1.6.2 compiled on July 16 2004

The Ant version is also the latest, where could the
problem be???

Any way I left the for and decided to use <for-each>,
but I have 1 problem here. I have already posted the
problem anyway lets hop I am more clear this time

I am using <for-each> task to set the properties
and I want them to be global. i.e. I want the value
of the property in any ant target I call.


<project default="site" basedir="." name="forrest">
....
....
<taskdef
resource="net/sf/antcontrib/antcontrib.properties"/>
	<target name="init-props">
	<foreach list="logging,app,add" param="archive"
target="base" 
		inheritall="true" inheritrefs="true"> 
	</foreach>
....
....
<antcall target="a" />
</target>

<target name="a" depends="init-props">
....
<antcall target="b" />
</target>

<target name="b" depends="init-props">
</target>

<target name="base">
<echo>****${archive}****</echo>
<property name="current.archive" value="${archive}" />
<echo>****${current.archive}****</echo>
</target>


The problem is I am not able to use the 
${current.archive} or ${archive} in other
ant tasks. Inside the 'base' ant task, they work
fine, but in other ant task its not visible.
How can I make them global?

Any help reg this will be great.

bye,
with regards,
Deepak.



bye,
with regards,
Deepak.
