Subject Dynamically increase the number of arguments to EXEC task based on the number and name of the file(s) in a directory.
Date Thu, 06 Apr 2006 13:37:01 GMT
Hello All,

 

Requirement: Dynamically increase the number of arguments to EXEC task
based on the number and name of the file in a directory.

 

For example a sample directory contains the following files with
extension "*.rod" (Number of rod files in the "src" directory
dynamically change): 

C:\src> dir /b *.rod

Details.rod

Info.rod

Summary.rod

 

Right now, I'm hard coding the file names in arguments to EXEC task in
the following way

<target name="erdpro">

            <condition property="erdpro.client.dir" value="C:\Program
Files\Actuate8\eRDPro\bin" >

              <os family="windows"/>

            </condition>       

 

            <echo> Compiling ROD files. Please wait...</echo>

            <exec dir="${erdpro.client.dir}"
executable="${erdpro.client.dir}/erdpro" >

                        <arg value="-b"/>

                        <arg value=" Details.rod" />

                        <arg value=" Info.rod" />

                        <arg value=" Summary.rod" />

            </exec>

</target>

 

Above target is good when I hardcode the files to the "arg". I want to
dynamically add "arg" values based on the number and name of the file. I
want to know how I can achieve my requirement. (Should I use marcodef?
If so how?)

 

Any help is highly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Mohan
