Subject Re: import file inside target
Date Wed, 19 Sep 2007 11:47:07 GMT
You sort of have the <import> task backwards...

Think of it as a master build.xml file that contains the basic methods
such as how something is compiled and deployed. Then each sub-project
would import these master methods.

For example, the build.xml master might say when something is
deployed, it is compiled, jar'd, and certain files in your sub-project
would be copied to specific locations.  I find that <import> works
great with <macrodef>. I use the <macrodef> in my master build.xml
file, then each project imports the master build.xml and uses the
macros I defined as the template to build their project.

It makes life much simpler for the developers because the targets they
use are much easier to write. Plus, it helps keep the various projects
in sync with each other.
