WOCompile Task Manual

This has been transcribed by Andrew Lindesay from the old WOProject site.


WOCompile is an Ant task to build WebObjects Java source code. It is a WO-friendly extension of Javac Ant task.


There are no special parameters. The documentation for the Javac applies.

Nested Elements

The nested frameworks is a FrameworkSet structure that specifies the names of the WebObjects Frameworks needed to compile the source code. The jar files from these frameworks will be added to the WOCompile CLASSPATH.
