Subject RE: SQL scripts in ANT
Date Wed, 19 Mar 2008 17:55:29 GMT
The usage of @filename in a sql script works in sqlplus because that is
a feature of sqlplus. When executing sql from ant, you are using a jdbc
connection and database specific things like this do not work.

Use a fileset to execute all the files you intent to execute. See the
documentation for the sql task for an example.

Hi Robert..
Thanks for the suggestions, unfortunately none works with ANT 1.7

The other way of doing it would be to create different ANT targets to
run different scripts and call them as per requirement..
This doesn't make a lot of sense to me, as that would not be the best
way to do it in our scenario where we have 10 different scripts to
run..but will have to use it if there is no go.

Let me know if something else flashes in your mind.

Subject: SQL scripts in ANT

Hi Experts.. 

i'm neither a sql nor an oracle expert ;-) ...

I tried putting all the *.sql scripts inside one and call that like 

<src="${PLSQL_ROOT}\MasterScript.sql" /> 

MasterScript.sql contains following : 

But , ANT is not able to recognise "@" exits.. 

Is there a way to accomplish this ??

... but i try =

did you try START instead of @ ?

means, use

START DropTables
START createTables

As far as i remember in sql plus START command is similar to @

maybe @ works when escaped, means try to write @@

Regards, Gilbert
