Subject RE: How to silence javac task?
Date Mon, 27 Nov 2006 14:45:18 GMT


Would that be ok?

<project default="main">

    <scriptdef name="whereAmI" language="javascript"><![CDATA[
        selfAsTarget    = self;
        currentTarget   = selfAsTarget.getOwningTarget();
        currentLocation = selfAsTarget.getLocation();
        project.log(currentLocation + "Target '" + currentTarget + "'");

    <target name="one">

    <target name="two">

    <target name="main" depends="one,two">

Subject: Re: How to silence javac task?

I have to reply to a message because if I post my problem as a new
message it is always rejected as spam!
  Here is it:
  I want to echo the current target name. Is this possible?
There is no build-in property Maybe another way?
Why I want to do this? Because if a error occurs, Ant prints the line 
number where the error occured, but not the target name, in which it 
occured. Sometimes I get a error message by mail like "Java returned 
  I would know more about that failure if I knew in which target it 
happend and not only in which line, because I don't have the Ant script 
all the time to check the line.
Best would be a stack trace like in Java. Ant 1.6.5 only contains 
line numbers and script names but not the target names in the error

No true ;-) log without an explicit log level uses INFO level, so
setting log level to WARN hides these messages, just like when running
Ant in quiet mode (-q).

The Javac messages are read by the stream pumper threads, and
forwarded to the default logger. You need to replace the default
logger with a custom one that filters out some messages and not
others. Possible, but requires programming... --DD
