Subject RE: AW: Exec Task
Date Fri, 10 Mar 2006 18:16:09 GMT
Great & thank you for your help.  I already use the javasvn.jar files and 
svn ant tasks to do this and I had checked these jar files into each project 
locally to access them easier for repo transactions. However, I was asked to 
create my own top level build project and not to pollute the developers' 
projects with my build stuff.  But since I know everyone has svn cli on 
their desk top, I'm testing to switch to ant exec to do this.

So then here's another question: Could I still use ant svn tasks 
cross-project wise? Let's say I touched the build.number file in 3 different 
& separate projects and since I'm pulling out all my build stuff out of 
their projects...I would like to be able to, from my master build project to 
make repository calls into their projects and check in the files.

xml entities?   &quot;

Mmh ... really  <arg value>?? Multiple options need a <arg line>
But here it would be better to use multiple <arg value>s
   <arg value="ci"/>
   <arg value="-m"/>
   <arg value="${}"/>
   <arg value="build.number"/>

Have you tried the available svn tasks? Mostly the tasks provided by the
svn team...
