Subject Re: Ant loop

Sounds like what you REALLY want to do is the <parallel> task. This
allows you to specify multiple tasks that can take place at the same
time. The <parallel> task will wait for each to complete before

There's no need for a flag or a loop.

<target name="db_deploy">

<target name="code_deploy">

<target name="deploy_and_restart_servers">
       <ant target="db_deploy"/>
       <ant target="code_deploy"/>
    <yadda task="Start Servers/>
