Subject Re: newbie question: variable scope
Date Tue, 11 Dec 2007 15:59:51 GMT
Don't know what Your ant file looks like, but I'd try to employ the 
antcontrib's antcallback task - it calls another target and lets it 
return a property (more than one actually) to the target, who made the 
call. Does that help?

Best regards,
