[Freeswitch-users] Best way to replicate include =>?

One important thing to remember is that in FreeSWITCH the dialplan is a
separate stage of a call.
FS parses your dialplan in one pass and builds a "todo" list and then it
hits execute state and really does the stuff.

We do have an application called execute_extension that lets you run a
dialplan module from the execute state just for the purpose of executing the
instruction set from a certian extension so you could use that for what you
want like so:

<!--- put this extension last -->
 <extension name="include" continue="true">
   <!-- conditions with no expression are instantly true -->
      <action application="execute_extension" data="${dialed_ext} XML
      <action application="execute_extension" data="${dialed_ext} XML

This would actually cause you to run through both contexts in this order
during EXECUTE state.
were the transfer app actually stops the EXECUTE by sending the channel back
to RINGING and
re-entering the dialplan stage.

Your best bet is to try to shift the paragidm in your head away from how
asterisk does it =D
