Hi All,

Can the XML build file be written in a more parametric fashion, whereby you
separate the dependency description from the execution instructions?  The
reason I ask is that the build file seems very declarative (which has its
positive points), but things can become pretty verbose in large scale
projects.  Could you parameterise a target in such a way as to create a more
reusable set of build process instructions?  For example, create a beanMaker
target that complies some bean classes, generates the serialized descriptor,
generates container classes, but can be completely reused.

Many thanks for any replies.
