Subject [jira] Created: (FOR-535) Create a plugins task for ANT
Date Fri, 10 Jun 2005 08:32:46 GMT
Create a plugins task for ANT

         Key: FOR-535
     Project: Forrest
        Type: Improvement
    Versions: 0.7-dev    
    Reporter: Ross Gardler
    Priority: Minor
     Fix For: 0.8

The ant file for loading and mounting plugins is horribly complex now that we are using versioned
plugins. I've used lots of if elements and mutable properties from the ant-contrib package.
In my view when you overuse these tasks it generally means you should have a specialised ANT
task to handle the logic. ANT is not supposed to be a programming language.

We need to create an ANT task for the handling the installation of plugns so that we have
more control over what is going on (for example, we can remove the need to have an unversioned
plugin to fall back on).
