Subject Re: Need help for ["AntCall" cannot return properties]

I added the AntCallBack and AntFetch tasks from antelope to ant-contrib. 
AntCallBack works like AntCall, but let's you get back some properties, 
and AntFetch does the same thing for the Ant task. You'd need to get 
them out of ant-contrib's cvs, as they are not in the current release. 
Ant-Contrib is at Alternatively, you 
can download the compiled tasks from the antelope project at The tasks are identical other than 
package name. Docs are on-line at
