Subject RE: Does this work with Ant?
Date Thu, 15 Feb 2007 14:53:58 GMT
Just did something similar to this using antcall and recursion.  One
routine to check/wait for a windows service to reach a desired state and
another to check/wait for files in a directory to reach a certain state.

The routines being called invoke the <sleep> and the conditions for
early exit, the caller specifies how many times (max) to call.

It's a little convoluted but can be done without extending ant.

It sounds like a combination of <waitfor> and <fail> might meet your
basic requirements, though you may have to provide your own condition
implementation depending on what "the task" is.

How to do this in Ant:
  Call a task every x seconds for x minutes until the task completes
successful. If the task completes successful, the build continues to the
next statement. If the task is not successful after the maximum minutes
are reached, fail.
  Write a Java class to encapsulate this or can this be done in Ant?
