Subject AW: Task help
Date Thu, 19 Oct 2006 07:13:30 GMT
You can use external tasks in the way of Ant until 1.5 (which is and will supported in the
feature too):
* place the jar in ${user.home}/.ant/lib, so Ant adds it to its classpath
* declare the tasks:
  - use <taskdef> for the mapping of taskname-classname
    + for each task
    + for a bundle of tasks using properties-file

Since Ant 1.6 we have "Antlibs". Same here:
* place the jar in ${user.home}/.ant/lib, so Ant adds it to its classpath
* declare the tasks
  - use <taskdef> for the mapping of taskname-classname
    + for each task   
      <taskdef name="for" classname="net.sf.antcontrib.For"/>
    + for a bundle of tasks using properties-file
      <taskdef file="net/sf/antcontrib/default.properties"/>
    + NEW: for a bundle of tasks using xml-file
      <taskdef file="net/sf/antcontrib/antlib.xml"/>
  - NEW: use of xml namespaces and "antlib:" protocol for a bundle of tasks using the xml
file (antlib.xml)
    <project .... xmlns:ac="antlib:net.sf.antcontrib">
        <ac:for>


I'll put a note into the manual at "Using Ant :: (NEW) Use of external tasks"
