Subject RE: reg. target dependency
Date Tue, 27 Dec 2005 15:47:17 GMT
Hi all, 

Any clarifications for the below statements.

There was a mention about targets in ANT manual. "It should be noted, however, that Ant's
depends attribute only specifies the order in which targets should be executed - it does not
affect whether the target that specifies the dependency(s) gets executed if the dependent
target(s) did not (need to) run."

if my target A fails, target B wud have to fail if it depends on A. but above statement looks
contradictory !! 

How does the dependency taken care by "MAKE" is done here in ANT ?
