groovy inside ant: how to access refids from grooy that are defined by ant tags


I'm using a groovy code snippet in an ant build file. Inside the groovy code I'm trying to reference a fileset that has been defined outside of the groovy part, like this:

<target name="listSourceFiles" > <fileset id="myfileset" dir="${my.dir}"> <patternset refid="mypatterns"/> </fileset> <groovy> def ant = new AntBuilder() scanner = ant.fileScanner { fileset(refid:"myfileset") } ... </groovy> </target>

When I execute this I get the following error message:

Buildfile: build.xml listSourceFiles: [groovy] BUILD FAILED d:\workspace\Project\ant\build.xml:13: Reference myfileset not found.

What am I missing?


According to the <a href="http://groovy.codehaus.org/The+groovy+Ant+Task" rel="nofollow" title="Groovy Ant Task">Groovy Ant Task</a> documentation, one of the <strong><em>bindings</em></strong> for the groovy task is the current <em>AntBuilder</em>, ant.

So modifying your script to drop the clashing 'ant' def I got it to run with no errors:

<project name="groovy-build" default="listSourceFiles"> <taskdef name="groovy" classname="org.codehaus.groovy.ant.Groovy"/> <patternset id="mypatterns"> <include name="../*.groovy"/> </patternset> <target name="listSourceFiles" > <fileset id="myfileset" dir="${my.dir}"> <patternset refid="mypatterns"/> </fileset> <groovy> scanner = ant.fileScanner { fileset(refid:"myfileset") } </groovy> </target> </project>
