Subject [Fwd: [PATCH] Add an example to the docs of using an ant task _outside_ of Ant]
Date Thu, 23 May 2002 03:56:41 GMT
Yikes!  Let's try that again with a zip file.  Somebody didn't like my HTML 
attachment.  Let's see, HTML with embedded java code. Yup, looks like a virus :-}

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?
