Subject Re: how to make hierchical build possible with ANT?
Date Fri, 29 Jul 2005 04:15:40 GMT
The dir attribute defaults to the current project's basedir, UNLESS 
"inheritall" has been set to false. In other words, add 
inheritAll="false" to your ant calls, and it should work. If you need 
to pass properties already defined, then setup a propertyset, and add 
that as a nested element to each ant task call...

Hope this helps!
