I'm not sure I understand taht. The target attribute of <ant> is not
required, the sub projects default target will be used if it is
omitted. Is that what you want?

try to use some <exclude> or <include> elements within the <javac>
task. If the list should be kept external the includesfile and
excludesfile attributes of <javac> may help.
