Subject Re: help to convert makefile to build.xml
Date Thu, 03 Nov 2005 13:43:33 GMT
Hi Steve,
I understand your valuable points,,
This working project itself is a migration kind of doing,, already the product uses the make
The proposal is -- at the time of migrating the product to a recent version of servers ( ex
: J2EE, LDAP, Database etc,, ) we want to do the same for build process also but with Ant,,
bcos the clients are compelling on that issue,,

first rule of successful projects: never change big things like the 
build process just before the release.

stick with make until you ship, then migrate. If you have to use ant 
right now, you can always exec Ant from make. Use the unix ant command 
or , on windows, or to get error codes propagating back.
