I have a file called manifest.mf(which i write physically outside of ant)
and I use this as the manifest file in the jar task
Also for adding date,time etc in that file
I use a replace task
this does not repalce '=' but keps it as ':'

Subject: create the menifest file in buildfile



in my buildfile, i need to create the manifest file as following:
--------------------
Product: Artemis
Version: 1.0
Build: 19
Date: 20010315
Time: 21:41:36
Builder: jwei@THE-BOY-BLUNDER
Product: Dynamo Integration Server
Config-Path: config
Class-Path: class/classes.jar
Required: DSS
--------------------

Seems the <propertyfile> is the task I should use, but, it will generate the
file as
-----------------
Product=Artemis
Version=1.0
...
-----------------
the separator is '=' rather than ': '

any suggestion?

really in a hurry, thanks in advance!
