Subject Re: ForTask throwing exception for same value for begin and end
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2009 13:37:16 GMT

Thanks a ton for your reply Peter.

I did the following in the ForTask code to fix it:

            if (step == 0) {
                throw new BuildException("step cannot be 0");
            } else if (iEnd > begin && step < 0) {
                throw new BuildException("end > begin, step needs to be >
0");
            } else if (iEnd < begin && step > 0) {   //Changed <= condition
to <
                throw new BuildException("end <= begin, step needs to be <
0");
            }

Thanks and Regards
