Subject AW: private targets
Date Tue, 19 Feb 2008 05:59:00 GMT
It is not possible to have a real private target. You can "hide" targets:
a) a target without a "description" is not printed when using "-projecthelp", if there is
   one target with a description
b) a target with a leading "-" can not be called from the command line because the command
line
   interface checks for leading "-" for options.

But because there is no concept of "private targets" in Ant other user interfaces (like Eclipse)
can expose all targets. (Speaking for Eclipse it can also hide "private" targets, but that's
a
configuration of the workspace.)
