Class SetPermissions

All Implemented Interfaces:

public class SetPermissions extends Task
Sets PosixFilePermissions for resources.

This task provides a subset of Chmod's and Attrib's abilities in less platform dependent way.

It requires a file system that supports PosixFilePermissions for its full potential. It can optionally fall back to DosFilePermissions (only changing the readonly state) on file systems that don't support POSIX permissions. See SetPermissions.NonPosixMode

    • execute

      public void execute()
      Description copied from class: Task
      Called by the project to let the task do its work. This method may be called more than once, if the task is invoked more than once. For example, if target1 and target2 both depend on target3, then running "ant target1 target2" will run all tasks in target3 twice.
      execute in class Task
