Ant 1.7 issues

Ant 1.7 issues

Ant 1.7 issues

Hi guys,

There is a weired thing happening in Ant 1.7, when I am using “ant -p" command to look up the available targets from the build script. By that command the Ant should display a bunch of available targets in the script. In Ant 1.6.5, the targets are displayed properly. However, in ant 1.7, it displays the targets in the parent script twice.

For example, the parent script is called "parent" as project name for the script and the script I execute is called "child" as project name for the script. The "child" calls "parent" for shared targets, "build", "compile". The "child" consists of "extension", "test".

When I type "ant -p" to the "child" script, it prints out the following:

But the "build" and "compile" are the same as "parent.build" and "parent.compile". Can I do anything on my script to get rid of the redundant targets?

If I do not set project name on the two scripts, the redundancy does go away. But I want to keep the project name to identify the scripts.

Do you guys know how do I fix that?

Thanks in advance
