Subject Re: Ant module in Forte
Date Fri, 31 Mar 2000 01:43:01 GMT
As a side note, the package is currently org.apache.antmodule, I can modify
this to if you'd like. Also, there is nothing in
the module that alters the compilation of Ant, you will not need a separate
build, just an additional target to output the module that is itself
dependent on Xerces/Xalan (if desired). The module uses a combination of
XPath and the Ant API to accomplish the target execution/creation. Either
way, I want to make sure Sun is able to include this module in the
auto-update list for Forte , so whatever I/you would need to do to
accomplish this would be great.
