Subject RE: Improving Tasks
Date Fri, 22 Oct 2004 18:57:27 GMT
Probably not widely known is that Ant-Contrib has a GUI input task, see
http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/ant-contrib/ant-contrib/src/net/sf/antcontrib/input/
GUIInputHandler. It does not do password masking, however.  This
particular input handler is copy and paste from the gui input handler used
by Antelope.

Also, look at http://ant.apache.org/resources.html, in the Articles
section, Ivan Ivanoe has written an excellent article titled "Extending
Ant Input Abilities" that discusses the current state of affairs for
command-line password masking in Ant.
