Subject RE: [Bug 1732] Changed - Add ability to remove a project property
Date Mon, 14 May 2001 12:31:53 GMT
I really have a problem with this request.

I am a believer on inmutable properties. Even though there was a vote on
allowing changing properties, I think that is the wrong thing to do.
The only place I see for modifying the values of properties in when
executing the <ant*> family of tasks. Those taks create a new "project
environment" and as such are cleanly defining a new context for property
values. In those tasks, I would agree, we need the ability to specify that
some property, defined in the project caller, must be made undefined at the
begining of the project callee.

Of course, I am of the opinion the the current inheritance rules for
properties in subprojects need to be revised, and maybe this issue should be
part of it.

Comments,

Jose Alberto
