Subject Re: TImestamping in ANT
Date Mon, 09 Jul 2007 17:40:55 GMT
I parse the build output in real time and note when "<target>:" lines 
are printed to calculate time spend by each target and groups of targets 
(targets with the same prefix). You can print some special prefix 
following with the current timestamp (preferably 
System.currentTimeMillis() - easier to parse), then parse output and 
extract all necessary times. It will work with predictable target 
execution order, which is not in my case.
