And here is BAT file:
@echo off echo BAT - Before Ant run ant -f build.xml echo BAT - After Ant run
Unfortunately, when you run this BAT you get the next output:
BAT - Before Ant run Buildfile: D:\Projects\blog\build.xml bat-test: [echo] Message from ANT BUILD SUCCESSFUL Total time: 0 seconds
So, where is the "BAT - After Ant run" echo message?
The problem is that Ant on Windows executed via ant.bat file and based on this we're calling one BAT file from another. We have to use CALL command to solve this issues, here is official note from CALL help:
Calls one batch program from another.And, here is the update BAT file:
CALL [drive:][path]filename [batch-parameters]
batch-parameters Specifies any command-line information required by the batch program.
@echo off echo BAT - Before Ant run call ant -f build.xml echo BAT - After Ant run
