Subject Re: How to define a path according to a property
Date Mon, 04 Jul 2011 10:01:21 GMT
Hi there.
My 1st attempt at answering a question on this list ... so apologies
if I make mistakes.
I believe patternsets do have conditional attributes. See this link:
http://ant.apache.org/manual/Types/patternset.html
Quoting from that page:
>>>>>
Patterns can be grouped to sets and later be referenced by their id
attribute. They are defined via a patternset element, which can appear
nested into a FileSet or a directory-based task that constitutes an
implicit FileSet. In addition, patternsets can be defined as a stand
alone element at the same level as target — i.e., as children of
project as well as as children of target.
<<<<<
The nested include element supports attributes "if" and "unless".


Hope this helps.
Thanks,
Parag Doke
