Subject A More extensible ProjectHelper ...
Date Sun, 14 Apr 2002 01:01:46 GMT
I've been working on a number of extensions to the 'property' task; one
of which is to be able to retrieve property values from an XML source
using XPath.  


Due to a limitation set by the ProjectHelper, only 'taskdef', 'target',
and 'property' tasks are recognized when parsing a build file.  Custom
tasks, such a mine, can only ever be used within a target.  


Has anyone though about making the ProjectHelper more flexible to allow
for arbitrary 'top' level tasks to be defined and handled?  Is something
like this already in development?
