Subject Re: help to convert makefile to build.xml
Date Fri, 04 Nov 2005 03:00:19 GMT
Hi Steve,
Actually I conveyed  the same to my team, but am helpless,,
its ok,
Before thinking of Ant, 
How to know the functional details of all makefiles in a project without going for any realtime
build -- like the available variables, includes, dependencies, etc,,
Is there any visual tools available for Make to have the graphical view of one or all the
files involved in the project along with resolution of dependency check and the like.

( 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,, 

that's too big a migration all in one go. you are going to be doomed and 
never be able to track down the problem.

start with baby steps, learn ant, apply to a child project. Get ant 
working then migrate to the servers, or migrate the servers and move to 
ant. dont try both at the same time.
