Subject Re: onsuccess or onfailure
Date Mon, 13 Apr 2009 14:24:10 GMT
Thanks Matt!  So if in target2 it fails out, it will still make it to target3?  In NAnt,
when it fails anywhere, that's it unless there's an onfailure declared...  Would it still
work my way (I don't like depends because of readability):

<target name="main">
  <antcall target="target1"/>
  <antcall target="target2"/>
  <antcall target="target3"/>
  <antcall target="onsuccess"/>
  <antcall target="onfailure"/>
</target>

<target name="target1">
  <echo message="In target1"/>
</target>

<target name="target2">
  <echo message="In target2"/>
</target>

<target name="target3">
  <echo message="In target3"/>
</target>

<target name="onsuccess" unless="failure">
    <echo message="successful"/>
  </target>

  <target name="onfailure" if="failure">
    <echo message="failure"/>
    <fail message="${failure}"/>
  </target>

<project default="main">

  <target name="target1">
    <echo message="In target1"/>
  </target>

  <target name="target2">
    <echo message="In target2"/>
  </target>

  <target name="target3">
    <echo message="In target3"/>
  </target>

  <target name="onsuccess" unless="failure">
    <echo message="successful"/>
  </target>

  <target name="onfailure" if="failure">
    <echo message="failure"/>
    <!-- make it more obvious the build failed" />
    <fail message="${failure}"/>
  </target>

  <target name="main" depends="target1,target2,target3,onsuccess,onfailure" />

</project>

You can test the failure state by specifying -Dfailure=anyvalue on the command line.  You
might like the NoBannerLogger (does not log quiet/skipped targets) with this example.  Also,
as far as mailing build results goes, the MailLogger may help you.

HTH,
Matt
