Subject Re: Python implementation for Ant
Date Thu, 08 Feb 2007 22:36:59 GMT
Maybe this can help a lot with tool support. But these tools must be offered everywhere, in
Eclipse, in IntelliJ Idea, in JDeveloper, in Borland, in NetBeans and so on. Every vendor
must implement such tool support. This is a lot of work to be done on many places, basically
the same work.

Eclipse implemented a debugger, which is another sign of the scripting nature of Ant files
by the way. But Eclipse still does not offer even 5% of the support for writing Ant script
like it offers for writing Java classes.

Okay, it is not pain like hell to write Ant scripts. But you all here could admit that writing
Ant scripts is not perfectly convenient... ;-)

so I use it as such...
