Subject Re: <mapper> question for usage in <uptodate>
Date Wed, 16 May 2007 14:33:17 GMT
Jay, <uptodate> should be able to handle what you want
to do, but we need a little more information regarding
the derivation of your target files.  In any event
you'll probably end up using a composite mapper (if
you're using the <mapper> element it should magically
behave as a composite mapper simply by nesting
multiple child mappers within it).

HTH,
Matt
