Subject RE: Call task from another task
Date Tue, 17 Aug 2004 02:00:22 GMT
Here would be what I would do:

Put the method in another utility class C and pass in the
ProjectComponent object you want to log to as an argument. So:

class C {
	static Object utilMeth(ProjectComponent logContext) {
	  // do stuff
	  if (logContext != null)
		logContext.log("logging now");

class A extends Task {

.. B is similar to A.

Or again with the method in class C, make A and B inherit from C.  So:

abstract class C extends Task {
	Object utilMeth() {
		log("logging now");

Class A extends C {

	void execute() {

.. and again similar for class B (it could also be static similar to
first e.g.).

Subject: Call task from another task

Dear Ant community,

I didn't find any documentation about the correct way
to call a task A from another task B.

I don't want to call the execute() method of A, but
another (utility) method. The utility method could be
static, but this way I couldn't use the logging mechanism.

So I need a way to access A from B (A should be set
up correctly).

Could someone give me a short pointer to documentation
about this topic?

Thanks in advance!
-- Andreas
