Subject Using mail logger with large builds - improvement?
Date Thu, 22 Dec 2005 11:01:00 GMT
I perform nightly builds for a fairly large system. I use mail logger
for both success and notification since I want to be sure build ran and
handle any problems asap.
I found that mail logger's notification, which contains the full build
log, is problematic - it encumbers my e-mail.

In my site I improved on this by changing to support an additional
attribute, MailLogger.body, which sends a fixed body.
I then run the build with a fixed body ("Build log can be found at
....") and a logfile to a central directory
ant build.nightly -logfile log\build.log -logger

With properties:
MailLogger.body=Nightly build log can be found at

This works nicely for me, and I think is a nice feature. 

Is anybody interested in the fixed class? Can this help other people?
(assuming it is helpful) Does anybody know how I can submit this to the
ant project?
