Package org.apache.tools.ant

Class AntClassLoader

public class AntClassLoader

Inheritance Information

Extends: java.lang.ClassLoader

Description

This class is used to load a class in Ant if that class exists within a classpath different from the one used to start Ant.

A helper method (forceLoadClass) allows classes to be loaded from the system classpath of the machine running Ant.

Constructors

public AntClassLoader(Project project, Path classpath)


When constructing a new classloader, you must specify both the Ant project it should be associated with and the classpath from which it will load classes.

public AntClassLoader(Project project, Path classpath,
 boolean systemFirst)


The alternate constructor for an AntClassLoader takes a true or false flag indicating whether the system classpath should also be used. This information is helpful if the classloader needs to access classes (or dependencies to classes) loaded in your system path (for example, JUnit).

Methods

public void setIsolated(boolean isolated)


This method forces Ant to look only in this classloader’s classpath (as opposed to also including the base classloader or other loaded classloaders). If isolated mode is turned on, then any classes referenced and not found in this classloader will throw a java.lang.classNotFoundException.

public void addSystemPackageRoot(java.lang.String packageRoot)


This method adds a new directory (or Java package) to the default path for the system path classloader. Any subdirectories will also be included.

public void addLoaderPackageRoot(java.lang.String packageRoot)


This method adds a new directory (or Java package) to the default path for this classloader. Any subdirectories will also be included.

public java.lang.Class forceLoadClass(java.lang.String classname)


This method loads this classloader even if that class is available on the system classpath. Any future class loaded by this object will be loaded using this classloader. If those classes are not available in its classpath, they will throw a java.lang.ClassNotFoundException.

public java.lang.Class forceLoadSystemClass(java.lang.String classname)


This method loads a class but defers to the system classloader. You use this method to ensure that any objects created by the class will be compatible with the system loader.

public java.io.InputStream getResourceAsStream(java.lang.String name)


You use this class to get an InputStream to a named resource.

protected java.lang.Class loadClass(java.lang.String classname, boolean resolve)


This method loads a given class using this classloader. If the requested class does not exist on the system classpath or this loader's classpath, the method will throw a java.lang.ClassNotFoundException.

public java.lang.Class findClass(java.lang.String name)


This method finds and loads a given class using this classloader. If the requested class does not exist on the system classpath or this loader's classpath, the method will throw a java.lang.ClassNotFoundException.

Class Task

public class Task


Inheritance Information

Extends: java.lang.Object

Description

You know that in Ant, a task is defined as a unit of work. A practical example of a task would be to delete a directory or a file, to check the latest version of a class out from a source control system, or to send an email message to your system administrator informing him that a build was successful or that it failed (along with the reasons why). All these tasks are part of the existing Ant framework, but as a developer you may need to create a new task customized to your (or your client’s) specific processes and/or needs. For instance, you may want to set up a custom task to make an entry in a database or a spreadsheet, or you may want to restart system services (or restart the Unreal Tournament server that coexists in your production environment). To create a custom task, you create a class that directly or indirectly extends org.apache.tools.ant.Task. The key method of a given Task object is the execute() method. When you’re creating a new task, the execute() method will contain the framework for the job to be performed. When a task is executed, an object of the org.apache.ant.Task class is instantiated and configured and then executes to perform a specific function. An oversimplified example implementation of a new custom task is listed here:

package org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs;
import org.apache.tools.ant.*;
public class GreetJon extends Task {
 public void execute() throws BuildException{
 System.out.println("Hello Jon!");
 }
}


For each property created in a task, there should be public setter and getter methods. The properties built into the abstract class Task are as follows: The only constructor for Task has no parameters, but for practical purposes it will probably be instantiated and initialized within a project using the createTask() method.

It is important to remember that a task usually exists within the scope of both a project and one or more of its child targets.
