Subject RE: writing to XML
Date Thu, 01 May 2008 14:01:52 GMT
Thanks guys, that's very helpful.

But, once I've used echoxml to write into a file, can I use it again to
add more values, in append mode?
I need to add values to my XML file in different tasks, not in one
place.

Please advice,

Thank you very much,
	Guy.

There is an <echoxml> task that takes well formed XML and echoes it.

<echoxml file="subbuild.xml">
   <project default="foo">
     <target name="foo">
       <echo>foo</echo>
     </target>
   </project>
</echoxml>

One thing you have to watch out for here is namespace games. If you want
xml in a new namespace
  -declare the namespaces inside the echoxml
  -keep it all explicit
  -check the output by hand to see that it looks ok

you can use <xmlvalidate> and <schemavalidate> to automate those checks
