I'm using a system like this.  I have a master Build.xml that knows how to

which will, in turn, do a target in the root Build.xml to build just the
project I started with (but it will build all of the required projects).

Subject: Cascading build.xml files

I'm trying to determine how best to use ant in projects with multiple
sub-components.  I was thinking of a master build.xml file that calls xml

projects like this?  Would I simply call the exec command for that sub
directory?  Thanks in advance.
