Subject AW: Calling a cmd batch file from Ant
Date Wed, 28 May 2008 09:03:15 GMT
But if you use <ANT> or <ANTCALL> it is like you would start  ANT a second time.
Therfore the properties
are set in the target or script that you call. The old values are lost if you use the attribute
Inheritall=false
And using <property> inside <Ant> sets some properties to a value you define.

Unless I'm missing something here, that wouldn't work.

You can't redefine an ant property one it has already been defined in one specific execution
of the said script.

That's why I was trying to get the batch file to set up an environment variable before executing
the generic component.xml
