Subject RE: ant UI
Date Mon, 20 Dec 2004 19:48:00 GMT
Look at the bottom of the second link-ed page. I need to finally create
such UI where we enter filename in a text box and get results.

Meanwhile, what I am looking for is a way to build UI to connect to ant
script for providing inputs to its properties. To make it clear:

I have <property name="DevBuild1" value="Build_0402_0009"/>
		<property name="DevBuild2" value="Build_0402_0012"/> in
my ant script
 I have to manually go inside the script and change these properties for
diff builds. I have to build a UI for it so that when I enter build name
there, it updates the property in ant script.

Use an XSLT.  Add something the following to your build file....

<?xml-stylesheet type="text/xsl" href="./ant2html.xsl"?>

After that, just create (or find it on the net) the stylesheet and open
build.xml file in IE or Mozilla.  You should see a moderately decent GUI

view of your build file.


Note: it is only "text/xsl" because IE needs that value and it doesn't 
break Mozilla, but there is no official mime-type named "text/xsl".

BTW, if it is graphical view of the dependencies that you are looking
try something like vizant.
