<control : ImportTask>


Task to import another build file into the current project.

It must be 'top level'. On execution it will read another Ant file into the same Project.

Important: we have not finalized how relative file references will be resolved in deep/complex build hierarchies -such as what happens when an imported file imports another file. Use absolute references for enhanced build file stability, especially in the imported files. Examples

 <import file="../common-targets.xml" />
Import targets from a file in a parent directory.

 <import file="${deploy-platform}.xml" />
Import the project defined by the property deploy-platform


Attribute Description Type Required?
optional sets the optional attribute boolean ?
file the name of the file to import. How relative paths are resolved is still in flux: use absolute paths for safety. String ?

Parameters accepted as nested elements
