Class CallTarget

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.lang.Cloneable

    public class CallTarget
    extends Task
    Call another target in the same project.
        <target name="foo">
          <antcall target="bar">
            <param name="property1" value="aaaaa" />
            <param name="foo" value="baz" />
           </antcall>
        </target>
    
        <target name="bar" depends="init">
          <echo message="prop is ${property1} ${foo}" />
        </target>
     

    This only works as expected if neither property1 nor foo are defined in the project itself.

    Since:
    Ant 1.2
