Subject Loading resource or property files embedded in jar file that distributes shared build files?
Date Fri, 08 Apr 2011 14:09:41 GMT
I've created a reusable set of build files using the technique I outlined at
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5124726/what-are-some-good-ways-to-distribute-a-common-ant-file-to-be-included-in-builds/5168745#5168745.
This technique relies heavily on Ant 1.8 importing files from the classpath
rather than from a file.

An issue I've run into, however, is how would my reusable build files (the
ones embedded in the jar file) load a properties file or resource from that
shared jar file?  It doesn't appear that by default either <properties
resource=""> or <loadresource> has access to resources that are in the
originating jar file.  I'd specify the classpath but--what would that be?

I've tinkered with writing a script or custom task to help me figure out how
to get the classpath (or classloader, for that matter) that corresponds to
the source jar file, but without any luck.

Thanks,
Rich
