Subject AW: How to get list of build files that will be executed for Ant build
Date Wed, 18 Nov 2015 11:31:24 GMT
Analyzing would be quite hard as you can include sub-builds dynamically:
<import file="${systemproperty}"/> override the name from the command line or otherwise
imported property value.
<subant> add an additional subdirectory ...

Especially if you think of using properties, their value can come from outside ...

So analyzing in a general way would not really practical.

But if you want to rely on some conditions (all buildfiles are named as "build.xml", no use
of dynamically imported files) much more should be possible.
But you have to hack deep into the Ant core ...
