Subject Re: Exiting ant TARGET without aborting build
Date Thu, 17 Mar 2005 18:04:51 GMT
Yes, I meant from inside the buildfile. Sorry - actually I mean to say
"target", not "task". I'd like to be able to do something like this:

<target name="foo">
    <some-task/>
    <another-task/>

    <condition property="should.exit">
        (condition check here....)
    </condition>

    <exit if="should.exit" message="some message"/>

    (do more-tasks...)

</target>

The "exit" task would simply exit the target, but would not abort the entire
build (assuming "foo" is a child target). Is THIS possible?
