Subject Re: How to call Ant scripts from Maven scripts the right way?
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2008 05:41:46 GMT
Then I would need to change pathes if I move the Ant scripts to the maven file. I am looking
for a solution, where Maven does not interfere with the relative pathes in the Ant scripts
at all (basedir, dots etc.). This would be the easiest.

for the properties, if you have some properties to define from maven to 
ant, you can use this example:
     <property name="var1" value="${project.version}"
     <property name="var2" value="${project.artifactId}"
     <ant antfile="build.xml">
         <target name="all" />

for the path name, it depends of your build file.
you can try by putting the build.xml file at the same level as the 
pom.xml file..
