Subject [SUBMIT] Configure task (much like UNIX configure tool)
Date Mon, 30 Apr 2001 04:49:24 GMT
Hi Gents,


A good build environment needs to be easily portable from machine to
machine. Developers are picky about laying out directories their own way.
This configure task was inspired by the linux configure command. Where,
before doing a source tree build we need to inspect a users evironment for
the third-party libs needed to complete a build. Externalizing the transient
pieces of your build enviroment help mitigate diverse user environments.
This task will bootstrap your development environment by creating
aproperties file that contains transient items such as compiler settings and
classpaths. This task uses the inherient search capabilites of patterns and
filesets. See ANT docs for description(s) of patternset and fileset.

configure.xml (example)
configure.html (Docs)
