you've told me before it's seemingly difficult to programmatically launch
an ATL transformation.
Since it's much easier to do it from Ant, calling ant programmatically
(like documented here
) may be a good workaround.
Obviously, it's going to need some wrapper code, and it'll need to be
replaced when the ATL APIs are ready, however I think it'd be worth it.
Your opinion ?
