This week's book giveaway is in the Java in General forum. We're giving away four copies of Think Java: How to Think Like a Computer Scientist and have Allen B. Downey & Chris Mayfield on-line! See this thread for details.
I'm trying to create a unified ant build script. All of my projects have a standard layout that I do not deviate from (lib projects have one structure, wars extend jars structure, etc). I want to build one ant script that will then just be imported into various projects. The trick is this ant script will be in a common project that all other projects will have on their classpath. As a result, I would like to simply include the ant script in the common.jar file. Then ant would just import the file from the jar's path.
Is this possible? Is it possible to read a jar as it would a file system?
