I'm using rake to build small java applications and have hit the ceiling,
or my ceiling, for how "large" a single file should be. I want to break
my rake files into pieces somehow, and even have multiple rake files
dependant on each other, perhaps (or maybe independent).
It's arbitrary, but can I have Rakefile call Rakefile.rb? That seems
absurd and a total kludge, but can it be done? Should I be using modules?
I'm aware of other, and probably better, tools for building java code
with, but want to stick with rake for the time being.
Can I do something with namespaces?
Part of the requirement which I have in mind is to build one java package
into Foo.jar and then another package in Bar.java, as seperate actions,
and then maybe have Baz.jar import Foo.jar and Bar.jar as external jar
files. I envision this as three independent build processes calling for
three rake files with different particulars. I wouldn't want cram all
that into one rakefile.
