From Jan Matèrne (jhm) <apa...@materne.de>
Subject AW: Ant Contrib
Date Mon, 05 Jun 2017 13:13:18 GMT
Some years ago there were a discussion about having ant-contrib a part of Ant.
Result was that it wasn't possible due IP (and therefore legal) reasons.

Having a look at the tasklist [1] there are some I would use:
* antcallback: maybe enhance <antcall> 
* antfetch: maybe (same base idea as antcallback)
* assert: not required, you could use antunit
* foreach: no in favour of 'for'
* for: yep
* if: not required since xmlns:if is available
* outofdate: no idea
* runtarget: no: use <ant> or <macrodef> or <antcall>
* switch: maybe, but would be in contra to <if>, you could use <antcall target="prefix${value}">
* throw: no, maybe enhance <fail>
* timetstampselector: no; nice idea but I would investigate more in using resource collections
and all existing selectors, not only the tstamp one
* trycatch: maybe
* httppost: yep
* antserver: no
* performancemonitor: no, use ProfileLogger [2]
* stopwatch: no, use [2]
* osfamily: use <os> condition
* shellscript: use <script>
* math: unsure, why do you want to calculate in a buildfile? (small calculations can be done
with <propertyfile>)
* propertycopy: maybe we should promote the props antlib [3] ...
* propertyselector: no
* pathtofileset: unsure
* propertyregex: maybe, but maybe I also should have a deeper look into props-antlib
* sortlist: no
* urlencode: maybe
* variable: no, you may use <local> in a <macrodef>
* forget: no, exec+spawn
* limit: unsure; the timeout for long-running tests is done on the CI server these days
* antclipse: no (unstable)
* compilewithwalls: no (deprecated)
* inifile: maybe (primarily use outside the java world? do we need a <registry> task?
A windows-antlib?)
* verifydesign: unsure; a breaking build would be a clear signal; but tools like SonarQube
and all the architectural tools (I should have a look at ;) are much more powerful than this
