Subject Re: Copy a directory list
Date Mon, 23 Jan 2006 09:20:27 GMT
Another ant-contrib solution may be using the for task:

    <taskdef name="for" classname="net.sf.antcontrib.logic.For"/>

    <property name="build.lib.dir" value="prj1/lib"/>
    <property name="confs-to-deploy" value="default,debug,prod"/>
    <property name="build.deploy.target" value="prj1/deploy"/>

    <for list="${confs-to-deploy}" param="dir">
        <sequential>
            <copy todir="${build.deploy.target}/@{dir}">
                <fileset dir="${build.lib.dir}/@{dir}" includes="**/*"/>
            </copy>
        </sequential>
    </for>

Regards

Frank
