Description Russ Baker 2007-06-21 08:04:57 UTC
The ant.version property is unset in imported build scripts using ANT 1.7. I
have a build file that uses an import "<import file="newBuild.xml"/>". In this
file, we do a check to see if the user is using the correct version of ANT using
the following:

    <condition property="ant.version.okay">
          <contains string="${ant.version}" substring="1.6"/>
          <contains string="${ant.version}" substring="1.7"/>

The property was never set, so I checked to see if the property was set by doing
	ANT VERSION: ${ant.version}

And this is exactly what appeared on the output:

ANT VERSION: ${ant.version}

So, it looks like the property gets lost somehow. I tested this on two different
boxes, so I'm pretty sure this is a bug.

oh, rereading its not quite the same; its import and not subant. Reopening.

I think that this is the same as  42263.

Please check your build file with a svn build of ant,
or provide an example set of build files that
show the problem.

This is happening when I am testing the Beehive dist. You can get the build
files and do a repro by following the instructions here:
http://wiki.apache.org/beehive/For_Beehive_Developers. Once you set up the
environment to use ANT 1.7, you can repro.

The build file:
contains the <ant inheritAll="false"/> task which will trigger
this the 42263 bug:
    <target name="deploy.beehive.webapp.runtime" description="Deploy the Beehive
webapp runtime given a webapp root as -Dwebapp.dir">
        <ant target="deploy.netui" dir="${beehive.home}/netui/" inheritAll="false">
            <property name="webapp.dir" location="${webapp.dir}"/>

    <target name="deploy.controls.webapp.runtime" description="Deploy the
Beehive controls runtime given a webapp root as -Dwebapp.dir">
        <ant target="deploy.controls.runtime" dir="${beehive.home}/controls/"
            <property name="webapp.dir" location="${webapp.dir}"/>

The project should work with ant 1.7.1(svn), in the mean-time
you can use the work-around of passing the ant.version to
the nested ant project:
   <ant target=....>
     <property name="ant.version" value="${ant.version}"/>
