Subject Obtaining properties
Date Tue, 03 Apr 2001 17:11:57 GMT
Hi,

I would like to obtain a property by using another property to get it.

I have a prop file like this
---------------------
proj1.run.main = com.xxx.Project1
proj2.run.main = com.xxx.Project2
---------------------

In my build.xml I would like to figure out which project to run based on a
passed in property.  (-Dproject=proj1)

So in my target would be something like

<property name="main" value="${project}.run.main" />

But instead of main being set to the string "proj1.run.main" I would like to
'dereference' that so it would get the previously set value
('com.xxx.Project1') 

Is this possible w/ ANT

Thanks.
