Subject Re: How to silence javac task?
Date Mon, 27 Nov 2006 14:40:04 GMT
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
