Subject Re: macrodef and classpath
Date Fri, 06 Feb 2009 21:28:38 GMT
Hi,
Thanks, but no.

I have my macrodefs stored in one file, and I import it in the 'real' build
file like so:

<import file="${base.dir}/buildMacros.xml"/>

I want to pass in my 'real' build properties to the macrodefs without
defining values in the macrodef file. This works using elements, but not
with attributes - am I missing something?

As well, I'm wondering what other kinds of reuse approaches there are?

Thanks,

Mark
