Hi all,
I have been working on conditional structures and loop structures on existing
workflow managers for a long time. For this purpose I have implemented two
simple examples for if-type and switch-type cases (examples are attached). In
these examples my program is simply downloading a file. If that file does not
exist in the first web address it tries another address. However, I could not
implement a loop structure for that. In the loop case the program should try
the same address until the file exists. Actually I know this is not a
reasonable and useful scenario but I just want to show whether a conditional
-loop scenario can be implemented in Ant.

Can u suggest me anything to implement that example. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.
