Subject Re: Obtaining properties
Date Tue, 03 Apr 2001 20:49:38 GMT
I can't think of any way right off-hand to do what you want (doesn't mean
there isn't a way, just that I can't think of one real quick :) -- but
wouldn't it be easier to just set "main" to "com.xxx.${project}" and
define ${project} with -Dproject="Project1"?
