Subject Project vs Sub Project - Why such Design
Date Thu, 05 Nov 2009 04:30:35 GMT


Is there a good documentation or the details about how ant's project and sub
project design.

I see a protected method getNewProject()

The sub project getProject() seems to give the value of parent project.. 

What is the senario

A.xml -> calls B.xml --> c.xml

When c.xml is called, is c the sub project of B and also A..

Why did ant decide to with sub project approach rather than calling each ant
call as independent project by it self but it may have just one parent.

I am sure this must be having some thing to do with class loaders,
parallelization etc.. Any deep inputs in this would be of great help.
