Subject Refactoring of ant scripts
Date Tue, 20 Apr 2010 05:05:07 GMT


It would be great for experts of ant dev, consider enhancements to ant to
make it refactoring friendly.

Some of the thoughts I have here are

1. All the tasks, which has a reference to path/file should support include
patterns as in fileset.
    Such support of patterns would enable script writers to choose not to
have absolute paths.
2. Should support referring of ant files's directory (like ant.this.dir or
3. All the tasks which need a root directory, can be configured to take
either basedir (could be the default as it is today) or ant.this.dir.

It would nice to capture much more such needs of writing refactoring
friendly needs from others and give a big push to ant tasks design.
