Subject Timestamp attribute processing
Date Mon, 01 Sep 2003 19:58:05 GMT
There have been some requests to add functionality to the stcheckout task (for StarTeam) to
enable checkout by a timestamp.  It will not be hard to do this, as the scenario is well-supported
in the StarTeam API.  

However, what about the Ant API?  Is there a standard way (and reusable/accessible code) for
passing in timestamps as attributes to a task?  It seems like a bad idea for every task to
roll its own date-parse processing.  Can someone point me at a better way to implement it
in ant?  Ideally this would support at least yyyy-MM-dd, yyyy-MM-dd hh:mm without making the
user supply a date-format string.
