This AntLib contains tasks, types and macros to access specific Java classes / data types, found as object values of Ant properties. The macros are purely based on ModelAnt util / antlib.xml tasks.
Note that the ability to assign non-string values to Ant properties is provided by the ModelAnt util library.
The following are macros to support properties values as instances of java.util.List
list.add Adds a property’s value form another list-valued property.
list.create Store in a property a list of strings, that are the names of described Ant resources
list.remove Remove a property’s value form another list-valued property.
Maps to list of values
The following are macros to support properties values as instances of java.util.Map<Object, java.util.List<?>>
map.create Store in a property a map from object keys to sets of objects
map.get Get the list value bound to a key. It could be null or a set of values
map.put Bind a key to (one more) value in the string keys to sets of objects mapping
map.remove Remove the key from the map.
String methods access
string.replace Call the String.replaceAll(regex, replacement) method on a property’s string value
- Make sure ModelAnt or just modelant-util.jar is in the classpath
- Use <typedef resource=”net/mdatools/modelant/util/datatypes.xml”/>
