Subject <mapper> question for usage in <uptodate>
Date Mon, 14 May 2007 16:45:36 GMT
Hello again,

I have a situation where many java files are being created from a
single xml file.  I don't want this to be done if the java files are
up to date.

Therefore, I'm trying to use the <uptodate> task to generate a
property only if java file creation is necessary.  The problem I'm
having is that all the examples of the <uptodate> task and it's
<mapper> subtasks deal with the output being a single file.

How do I write a <mapper> to where the target is multiple files?

For example

  <uptodate property="dont.gen.java"
      srcfile="my-xml-file.xml">
    <mapper type="merge"
        to="a-whole-wack-of-java-files" />
  </uptodate>

So, what type of mapper do I need to map a single source file to
multiple target files?
