Subject [Fwd: XSLT task question]
Date Fri, 04 Jul 2003 01:03:24 GMT
I'm very new to this whole process and am not really sure how it all
works. So I'll just throw this out at you all and see what you think.

A few weeks ago I asked the attached question on the users list. I am
going to have to build this anyway. So I am wondering if you think the
general Ant community would find it useful, and therefore I should
enhance the exisitng <xslt> task. Or if you don't think anyone else
would find this feature useful, I would just build our own in-house task
and leave it at that.

What I'm thinking about adding is something like:

    <style extension=".xml" dest="${build.dir}/datasets" naming="xsl">
      <xsl dir="${src.dir}">
        <include name="**/*.xsl" />
      <xml dir="${src.dir}">
        <include name="data.xml" />

So the Style task would take one or more filesets of XSL documents and
one or more filesets of XML documents. The name of the resulting files
would be derived from the naming attribute (either "xsl" or "xml").

What do you think?
