Subject Re: Creating task/macro wrappers
Date Sun, 24 Feb 2019 17:27:06 GMT
Thanks!  I didn't notice the <augment> task existed.

However, I don't seem to wrap my head around it.  In particular, it
doesn't seem to support forward references.  This is what I tried:

<macrodef name="mywrapper">
  <attribute name="timeOut" default=""/>
  <sequential>
    <augment unless:blank="timeOut" id="my-testng-invocation"
timeOut="@{timeOut}"/>
    <testng id="my-testng-invocation">...</testng>
  </sequentail>
</macrodef>

The error I get is:

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unknown reference "my-testng-invocation"

Best regards.
