Description Andrzej Taramina 2005-06-28 23:31:52 UTC
You can separate the commands using a command line separator, but with many such
commands, it's difficult to read the resulting ant task.

I've added an extension that lets you nest <command> subelements to the sshexec
task, which cleans up this process.  New class is called SSHExecMultiple for
this task.

Sample usage for testing of sshexecmultiple:

<target name="test-sshmultiple">
   <echo>Starting sshexecmultiple test...</echo>
   <!-- sshexecmultiple lets you nest multiple commands and will 
        execute them in sequence.
	Attributes are the same as for the base sshexec, with the addition of 
        the haltonerror attribute.
	If haltonerror = "true" then if any command fails, subsequent commands 
        will not be executed.
	If haltonerror = "false" then if any command fails, subsequent commands 
        will STILL be executed.
	NOTE: The state is not preserved between the commands in this version. 
	For example, if you change dirs in one command, this will no longer be 
        in effect for the subsequent commands,
	as is demonstrated below.  If you need to change state (ie directory) 
        use semi-colons to separate multiple
	commands in a single <command> entry as is demonstrated below.
   <sshexecmultiple host="myhost" 
      <command>echo One</command>
      <command>echo Two</command>
      <command>cd ..;pwd</command>

   <echo>Done sshexecmultiple test</echo>

-fixed in svn head using a FileResource, specify your commands in a seperate file eg.

<sshexec host="ip" port="22"
 			username="root" password=""
 			failonerror="true" trust="true"/>

touch 1.txt
mv 1.txt 2.txt
mv 2.txt 3.txt
