Can't be done that way; however, you can use xml to achieve the
same effect, see

Subject: extend a project

Is it possible one project to extend another, in this way inheriting all
targets defined in the parent project. If "ant" task is used, e.g.:

 <target name="ftpconsole">
  <echo message="test it"/>
  <ant antfile="build.xml" target="ftpconsole"/>

all targets from the parent project must be redefined in the child project
in order to be accessed.

Is there something like this:

<project name="childproject" extends="parentproject.xml" ..>
//all targets from parent project can be accessed here,

Let's have defined target "test" in parentproject.xml, I need to call it
this way:

ant -buildfile childproject.xml test

Best regards,
Maria Ivanova
