Subject [PATCH] Add an example to the docs of using an ant task _outside_ of Ant
Date Thu, 23 May 2002 03:53:02 GMT

Attached please find a patch to the Ant manual to add an example of using an Ant 
task outside of Ant.  I give a quickie example of how (with few lines of code) 
you can leverage the functionality/robustness/crossplatform/etc/ goodness of Ant 
in your own programs.

The particular example:  I use XSLT to transform XML descriptors, and I needed a 
way to expand zip files that I encounter in my XML file.   I show how you can 
leverage the Ant Expand task to do just that.

I put the example in a separate file that gets linked from the "Developing with 
Ant" section.   Does anyone think this would be useful?
