Subject RE: Perform different target depending on *value* of property
Date Fri, 15 Oct 2004 13:31:52 GMT
I think he means you would have:

<target name="foo-upload">...</target> 
<target name="bar-upload">...</target> 
<target name="test-upload">...</target> 

and <antcall target="${servername}-upload"/> would call the appropriate one (and only
that one). Worth a try - if it works, it's brilliant.
