Hello Ranchers,

I am having a requirement. I have some x number of ANT Scripts that i execute from my java program. My requirement is that, i have some common tags in ant script, which if I am able to change, it should change all the ant script auto. For eg. some external refrence of the tag.. is that possible? Or else, if there is a change in ant script, i have to go & change all the scripts manually...

please help

Sounds like you have some duplication in the scripts that is causing you problems when you need to change them?

Take a look at the import task to put those things into one single place.

The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
