Subject RE: setting properties from a User defined Task.

Pablo,

The problem is that the property substitution happens before any tasks are
executed. Currently ant cannot do what you are asking. Perhaps you can tell
us how you wish to use the ppp value. There may be other mechanisms within
ant that you can use.
