Subject RE: Call specific Targets from a GUI

I had done similar work. Hope it gives you some idea.

I have a JSP Xml-Rpc Client which calls a method in a class on server.
It has Runtime.exec command to execute a bat file.

In my bat file I execute my ant script with all the parameters I want to
pass on to a particular target. (as from command prompt)

Subject: Call specific Targets from a GUI

Hello,

I am trying to create a GUI that will allow a user to press either of
two
buttons. If they press the first button then a target within the
build.xml
is executed i.e. compile a set of java files outputted to a specific
directory. If they press the second button the same applies but again is
outputted to a second directory.

I have been messing with 

import org.apache.tools.ant.Task;
import org.apache.tools.ant.BuildException;
import org.apache.tools.ant.Task;

but not getting very far. I have managed to create java files that can
call
different tasks from the command prompt i.e. ant run or ant run2 which
uses
the class file to pass arguments etc...to the build.xml file.

What is the best place to start to design a GUI that will allow me to
call
specific targets from an application or is this even possible!

Regards,

John
