Subject Feature Request - Executor setting though the script
Date Thu, 05 Nov 2009 06:00:02 GMT


Instead of specifying the executor though ANT_OPTS is it possible to set the
executor though the ant build.xml script.

In this approach of setting property ant executor etc.. (needed class path
could also be set accrodingly like in taskdef) one could easily change the
executor at build level or at each module level and do the custom pre and
post target innovation.

Would like to have forum views on such feature.

We see such need for the reason of supporting virtual targets.. which are
specific to each module. This approach can simplify a lot rather than one
gaint executor which has info of each of the module and submodules.
