Subject importing ant targets from the classpath
Date Thu, 06 May 2010 15:59:19 GMT
I would like to import ant build targets from the classpath. In
otherwords, I am looking for an equivalent of the "import" task, which
brings files not from the filesystem, but from the classpath (and
hence possibly from a jar). I doesn't seem to me that this is possible
with the import task. I was wondering if I have overlooked some other
facet of ant that allows this kind of functionality.

I need this kind of functionality because I have a lot of different
projects that build in a similar fashion. Currently I import the
common build targets from an ant file in a common directory, however I
would rather distribute this common build file using the maven
dependency mechanism for extra flexibility.

Ideally I would like to not have to check out the common build logic
unless I intend to change it.
