Subject Invoking Ant programmatically by an String
Date Fri, 06 Mar 2009 18:57:19 GMT
Hi everybody,

I try to invoke ant programmatically.
At the moment I use the following code to invoke ant from a build.xml:

     File buildFile = new File("build.xml");
     Project p = new Project();
     p.setUserProperty("ant.file", buildFile.getAbsolutePath());
     ProjectHelper helper = ProjectHelper.getProjectHelper();
     p.addReference("ant.projectHelper", helper);
     helper.parse(p, buildFile);

Is there any possibility to invoke ant by an Java-String without using a 
real build.xml ???

Thank you for your suggestions
