Subject [Ant Wiki] Trivial Update of "AntWeaknessesAndProblems" by SteveLoughran
Date Wed, 07 Sep 2005 10:27:16 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Ant Wiki" for change notification.

The following page has been changed by SteveLoughran:

The comment on the change is:
->antcontrib for exceptions

   * Persistent state. If the ant process dies, all explicit record of the state is lost.
In a build, this is not a problem; file artifacts are still present, and rebuilds are the
best action.
   * Fault handling. In a build process, task failure often means something is seriously wrong
and needs fixing. In a workflow, exception handling logic allows for failures to be handled
+  Note that AntContrib has a <trycatch> task that provides some failure handling.
   * Parallel operation. Yes, there is a <parallel> task, but it gets complex to use.
Also, you need to be sure that all the tasks that are used in parallel are safe to be used
