Subject Ant task: PropertyFileIterator
Date Sun, 28 Mar 2004 18:15:10 GMT
Hi

Attached you can find an ANT task that allows to iterate over a property
file and, for each key/value pair, assigns the values to ANT properties and
then calls any ANT target using the existing "ant" target functionality.

Perhaps this generic task would also be helpful to other people by being an
optional task?

Best regards, Etienne

P.S. I'm new to this list, so please be kind if I broke any ant mailinglist
rules...
