Description Marc Guillemot 2006-10-16 00:13:35 UTC
It would be interesting if Ant could notify listeners (or a special sort of 
listeners) of property expansion.

WebTest (http://webtest.canoo.com) makes an intensive use of ant 
(WebTest steps are expressed as ant Tasks) and we need to "see" how the 
tasks have been configured to generate a comprehensive report. This is 
not really easy (own PropertyHelper, guess which property of which class 
has been expanded, ...) and could be much easier and safer if Ant could 
notify of what is done in RuntimeConfigurable#maybeConfigure and 

I suppose that it could be interesting not only for WebTest but for instance for
IDE too.
