Subject RE: Calling a String
Date Mon, 30 Jul 2007 07:06:21 GMT
That sounds like exactly what I want ... but ... it's not working by me

This is the content of my ANT file ... am I missing something?

<project>
     <taskdef resource="com/idaremedia/antx/antlib.xml"
     >
          <classpath>
               <pathelement location="D:\Data\...\lib\JWare_apis.jar"
               />
               <pathelement location="D:\Data\...\lib\AntX_tasks.jar"
               />
          </classpath>
     </taskdef>
     <target name="echostrings">
          <strings id="josh.test">
               <string value="a" />
               <string value="b" />
               <string value="c" />
          </strings>
          <echo message="${$ref:josh.test}" />
     </target>
</project>

Here is the console:
echostrings:
     [echo] ${$ref:josh.test}
BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 718 milliseconds

Here is what I would like to see on the Console:
echostrings:
     [echo] a,b,c
BUILD SUCCESSFUL
Total time: 718 milliseconds
BTW, what's a URI?  Where can I find info on it as well as uses of
similar references to ${$ref:josh.test}

TIA,
Josh

Not sure what you need to do but if you're trying to print the
contents of a <strings> object w/o the # information, no luck
because both print tasks are 'diagnostic' tasks so currently
there's no way to nuke the verbose header junk.

But you can try using the Ant echo task with the AntX $ref
value URI like:

<echo message="${$ref:josh.test}" file="whatever.log"/>

if 'josh.test' is a reference to a <strings> object is will
only print the comma-delimited list of values.

Example:
   <target name="echostrings">
     <strings id="josh.test">
       <string value="a"/>
       <string value="b"/>
       <string value="c"/>
     </strings>
     <echo message="${$ref:josh.test}"/>
   </target>

-OUTPUT-
echostrings:
      [echo] a,b,c
