Subject AW: Converting new or changed files with an batch file called from within ant
Date Tue, 12 Apr 2005 08:54:04 GMT
Hi James, 

Thank you very much for the quick reply.

Would be nice. I am just uncertain how to do this properly ;)

hmm, I think I will try to do it with <xslt>. Do you know how I specify
my desired processor?
Is it @processor or @classpath? Or do I need to specify both?
Does it depend on the processor, if the input files are compared with
the existing output files for changes?
Does Saxon offer such an functionality?

Before starting the transformation I have a "source" and a "result"
Doing the XSLT transformation I just have to convert files from within
my "source" folder,
which are newer than those files already existing in "result".
As you mentioned, I think I have to use <uptodate>, but I am - once
again - unsure
about the inner strucutre...Do I need to use <mapper> for defining the
target folder for those checkings?
A pretty general question, where do I put the <uptodate> element?
Directly within <target>?

Thank you very much again for your help!
