Hey Gilbert,

Thanks, that was a useful info on try\catch. I implemented it in my script,
and it was good.
However, when I tried to catch any exception, it didn't do that well.

basically, I have a main target, which does couple of tasks -this I have put
under try and have set exception message too in <trycatch>. So, my <catch>
gets the exception message as "Build failed".

What am looking is a brief note on which sub task caused exception.

<trycatch property = "exception" reference ="exception_ref">
<try>
<task1/>
<task2/>
[...]


i didn't mention try/catch in my response to your post :-)

but back to your try/catch problem,maybe it's as simple as a missing
failonerror="true" attribute in your nested tasks, means try =

trycatch property = "exception" reference ="exception_ref">
<try>
<task1 .. failonerror="true"/>
<task2.. failonerror="true"/>


because without failonerror="true" it won't get catched ;-)


Regards, Gilbert
